Three people reported to Ruiz Foods that they found the small rocks inside breakfast burritos, necessitating the recall.

One person even reported to the company they were injured by biting into the burrito, according to the FSIS.

“FSIS is concerned that some product may be in consumers’ freezers,” the agency said in a press release. “Consumers who have purchased these products are urged not to consume them. These products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase.”

The burrito wraps were sent to stores across the country, including Walmart, Sam’s Club, Target and SafeWay gas stations.

Ruiz Foods, headquartered in Dinuba, California, about 30 miles southeast of Fresno, bills El Monterey products as America’s best-selling frozen Mexican food.
