Several brands of frozen taquitos and chimichangas have been recalled for posing a possible “choking hazard,” according to a new health alert from the USDA.

On Saturday, the Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service issued a warning for several types of chicken and beef taquitos and chimichangas from Sun Valley Foods.

The alert specifies products that contain "diced green chilies that have been recalled by the producer, Sun Valley Foods, due to concerns that the products may be contaminated with extraneous materials, specifically hard plastic.”

It also indicates that the "plastic may pose a choking hazard or cause damage to teeth or gums."

Affected items include certain ones sold under José Olé, Casa Mamita and Walmart's Great Value brand.

While the USDA’s alert advises consumers to return or discard affected products, it clarifies that no confirmed cases “of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products” have been reported.
