Trader Joe's Recalls Packaged Salads Over Concern They May Contain Glass or Plastic Fragments
If you're a frequent TJ's shopper, you need to read this.
On Saturday, Trader Joe’s recalled three of its packaged salads after a supplier reported the products may contain pieces of glass or hard plastic.
The three potentially contaminated salads are the White Meat Chicken salad, the Curried White Chicken Deli salad and the Turkey Cranberry Apple salad with expiration dates from Nov. 10-21, according to a statement made on Trader Joe’s website.
The recall affects White Meat Chicken salads and Curried White Chicken Deli salads sold in Arizona, California, Nevada, Utah, Colorado, Louisiana, New Mexico, Oklahoma and Texas.
It also affects Turkey Cranberry Apple salads sold in Arizona, California, Nevada, Utah, Idaho, Oregon and Washington.
If you have purchased packaged salads from one of the states listed above, check to see if the products are labeled with the United States Department of Agriculture’s “inspected” code P-40299.
According to Trader Joe’s website, only products with this inspection code have been recalled. If your salad has a different inspection code, that means it was produced in separate facilities which have not raised contamination concerns.
Trader Joe’s has announced that all potentially contaminated products have already been removed from Trader Joe’s stores, but if you have purchased a salad affected by the recall, the company urges you to return it to any location — not just the one you purchased it at — for a full refund.
