Ajinomoto Windsor, Inc., a Lampass, Texas food manufacturer, is recalling 35,168 pounds of frozen read-to-eat beef taquito products that may have rubber and plastic pieces in them, says the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service. 

The beef taquitos were produced on December 30, 2016 and they have establishment number "Est. M-5590" inside the USDA mark of inspection. The items were shipped to retail locations in California, Florida, Illinois, Missouri, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Texas, and Wyoming. 

The company received two complaints of foreign material inside of the read-to-eat beef products on March 14, 2017 and March 21, 2017. Those foreign materials were pieces of rubber with white plastic that originated from the processing equipment. 

There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products. If you are concerned about an injury or illness, you should contact your healthcare provider. 

Consumers who have purchased the taquitos are urged not to consume them. They should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase.
