USDA issues health alert for frozen taquitos, chimichangas that may be contaminated with plastic

(WHDH) — The United States Department of Agriculture has issued a health alert for frozen taquitos and chimichangas that may be contaminated with pieces of hard plastic.

Sun Valley Foods has recalled ready-to-eat beef and chicken taquitos and chimichangas products that contain Food and Drug Administration-regulated diced green chilies. The items were shipped to stores across the country.

The hard plastic in the products may pose a choking hazard or cause damage to teeth or gums, the USDA warned.

There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products.
