You thought you only had to worry about roadside Taco Trucks making you sick, but even store bought Taquitos can get you sick. There is a huge recall of 2.5 million pounds of Ruiz Food Products brand Taquitos due to salmonella and listeria concerns.

Affected products:

  • 4.5-lbs. cardboard cases containing 24-count Go-Go Taquitos “Beef Taco & Cheese Taquitos” with a case code 86183 printed on the label.
  • 4.5-lbs. cardboard cases containing 24-count Go-Go Taquitos “Buffalo Style Cooked Glazed Chicken Taquitos” with a case code 86006 printed on the label.
  • 4.5-lbs. cardboard cases containing 24-count Go-Go Taquitos “Chipotle Chicken Wrapped in A Battered Flour Tortilla” with a case code 86019 printed on the label.

Brands affected include Ruiz, El Monterey (these are the brand I have at home), and Tornadoes. Full details on the recall can be found at the USDA website. I know it may be weird, but I want Taquitos now. Just not the infected ones.
