This Trader Joe’s Item Was Just Recalled for Safety Complaints

Trader Joe’s has just issued a recall for one of its products due to safety complaints. The product in question is the Trader Joe’s Organic Raw Walnuts, which were sold in 16-ounce packages with a “best by” date of October 2020. The recall was issued due to the potential presence of Salmonella, which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, elderly people, and those with weakened immune systems.

The recall was issued after the company received a complaint from a customer who reported finding Salmonella in the product. The company has since removed the product from its shelves and is urging customers who purchased the product to discard it or return it to the store for a full refund.

The recall is a reminder to always be mindful of food safety when shopping for groceries. It’s important to check the expiration dates on products and to always follow the instructions on the label. Additionally, it’s important to practice proper food safety when preparing and storing food, such as washing your hands before and after handling food, and keeping raw and cooked foods separate.

If you have any questions or concerns about the recall, you can contact Trader Joe’s customer service at 1-800-746-7857.

If you’re a Trader Joe’s fan, you know the quirky grocery chain for their generally healthy foods that often come in unique flavors. And if you’ve shopped there in the past few months or bought chicken patties at another retailer, you may want to be aware of this: This week, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) announced the recall of a meat item that was distributed to Trader Joe’s locations nationwide due to a food safety issue. That’s after some customers recently reported “extraneous material” inside a popular TJ’s product, as well as a product sold elsewhere nationally.

On Wednesday, the USDA’s Food Safety and Inspection Service published a recall announcement for 97,887 pounds of “raw ground chicken patty products” that reportedly were produced between August 16, 2021 and September 29, 2021 by Washington state-based Innovative Solutions, Inc. The advisory stated: “The problem was discovered after the firm received consumer complaints reporting findings of bone in the chicken burger product.”

Two recalled products are included under this advisory. One is Trader Joe’s Chile Lime Chicken Burgers that were sold in four-count, one-pound cardboard packaging. The advisory suggests the recalled products bear lot codes 2281, 2291, 2311, 2351, 2361, 2371, 2441, 2511, 2521, 2531, 2561, 2591, 2601, 2671, or 2721.

The other is Spinach Feta Chicken Sliders in 72-count, nine-pound bulk-pack boxes whose labels are printed with lot codes 2361 or 2631. A representative for Trader Joe’s told Eat This, Not That! this product is not sold at their particular grocery chain, adding: “No other Trader Joe’s Chicken Products (or Trader Joe’s products in general) have been recalled.”

Though the chicken patties are sold at different stores, Innovative Solutions, Inc. states that the affected products both bear establishments numbers EST. P-8276.

According to the announcement, no adverse reactions had been reported as of Wednesday; however, Innovative Solutions, Inc. has noted that some customers may still have these chicken patties in their freezers. The recall announcement advised that consumers are urged not to consume these products and instead to discard them or return to the place of purchase.
