Trader Joe's Is Warning Customers About This Potentially Dangerous Item
After recalling its zesty Arugula Basil Salad Kit less than two months ago, Trader Joe's is taking another salad off the market.
The grocery store company revealed yesterday that an allergy known as egg may be present in its ready-to-eat "Caesar Salad with White Chicken and Creamy Caesar Dressing."
Only Idaho, Oregon, and Washington retailers carried this product, which carries the establishment number "P-46987" inside the USDA mark of inspection.
The salads had "Best By" dates of 7/11/2022 and 7/12/2022 when they were prepared on July 5. They were packaged in nine-ounce plastic clamshell containers.
According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture Food Safety and Inspection Service, a shop reported that the salad dressing packets looked wrong.
"Sweet and Spicy Vinaigrette is in the salad dressing packets, not Creamy Caesar. These unmarked dressing containers contain egg, which isn't declared "FSIS announced.
The FDA also stated that since the salads are no longer for sale, no recall was sought.
Trader Joe's advises consumers with egg allergies not to eat the goods, despite no illness or allergic reactions. Those who still have the salad should throw it away or return it for a full refund.
Trader Joe's Customer Relations can be reached by email or by calling (626) 599-3817 from 6:00 am to 6:00 pm Pacific Time, Monday through Friday, if you have any more questions about this public health alert.
