Mission Foods recalls tortillas, shells, tostadas, and chips

11/02/2000-Mission Foods, Irving, Texas, has announced a nationwide recall of tortillas, shells, tostadas, and chips. Over 300 products marketed by Food Lion, Shurfine, Kroger, Richfood, and numerous other grocers are part of the recall. Many of the products are packaged for foodservice distribution as well.

The products appear to contain Bacillus thuringiensis subspecies tolworthi Cry9C protein and the genetic material necessary for its production in corn (trade name: StarLink)- a pesticide which is not allowed for use in foods for human consumption. The FDA report is posted at the following www site:
