Trader Joe’s Issues Apology And Recall After Salads Were Contaminated With Shards Of Plastic And Glass

The popular grocery chain Trader Joe’s says it has recalled several packaged salads after their supplier said there may be shards of glass or hard plastic inside.

The grocery chain said on November 18, 2017, on its website that packages of white meat chicken salad, curried white chicken deli salad and turkey cranberry apple salad sold in some areas with an expiration date of November 10-21, 2017, could be contaminated.

The warning applies to white meat chicken and curried white chicken deli salads sold in Arizona, California, Nevada, Utah, Colorado, Louisiana, New Mexico, Oklahoma or Texas.

The products are labeled with the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s “inspected” code P-40299.

Turkey cranberry salads sold in California, Arizona, Nevada, Utah, Idaho, Oregon or Washington are at risk.

Trader Joe’s said products with other “inspected” codes were not affected because they were created at separate sites.

The chain apologized and urged customers to discard the products or return them for a refund.
