The affected products have the establishment number “Est. M-5590” inside the USDA mark of inspection. These items were shipped to retail locations in California, Florida, Illinois, Missouri, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Texas, and Wyoming.

The problem was discovered when Ajinomoto Windsor, Inc., the items' manufacturer, received consumer complaints of foreign material in the taquitos on March 14, 2017 and March 21, 2017.

The foreign materials were fragments of rubber with white plastic that came from the company's processing equipment. No illnesses or adverse reactions have been reported.
