Denison's Ruiz Foods is recalling approximately 2.4 million pounds of ready-to-eat meat and poultry taquitos due to possible salmonella and listeria contamination, according to the the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service.

Suppliers in Florida, California, Washington, Oregon and Texas have recalled mixed salads sold at retailers that include Trader Joe's, Walmart, 7-Eleven and Whole Foods, the USDA said.

The Agriculture Department said in a release issued Friday that Buddy's Kitchen Inc. of Burnsville produced the products between Oct 19, 2017, and October 9, 2018.

"The risk was identified as potential contamination with listeria monocytogenes and salmonella".

If a supplier recalls ingredients over a possible foodborne illness, the supplier's customers nearly always will recall the products with those ingredients.

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

Those who have purchased the recalled item should not eat them; instead, the item should be tossed or returned to the store where it was purchased. Anyone with questions can call the Ruiz Food Products Inc. consumer hotline at 1-800-772-6474.
