USDA recalls Trader Joe's packaged salads

Several ready-to-eat chicken and turkey salad mixes sold at Trader Joe's and produced at a Southern California company are being recalled because they may have been contaminated by hard silica and glass fragments.

Our supplier has notified us that the following fresh salads-sold only in the states listed-with date codes USE BY 11/10 through 11/21 and the U.S.D.A.

The products also have an establishment number "P-40299" inside the USDA mark of inspection.

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

Green Cuisine packaged salads affected by a recall. Again, if you did buy any of those salads, but they have a different inspection code, Trader Joe's says they should be fine.

If you've bought any salads with those labels, you're asked to throw it away or return it to any Trader Joe's for a full refund.
