What’s the Problem?
The recalled Pacific Gold Onions were sold on the West Coast at Trader Joe’s (red onions sold only in Arizona, California, Nevada, and Utah stores) and Ralph’s (yellow onions sold only in California stores). The onions are sold loose in bulk bins, and the red onions have a PLU sticker with the brand name Pacific Gold.
This recall is the result of an earlier recall initiated by Thomson International, Inc., whose onions have been linked to an outbreak of salmonella that has sickened nearly 640 people in 43 states, according to the FDA. The first cases were reported between June 19, 2020, and July 11, 2020.
Retailers that received onions from Progressive Produce have been instructed to remove all recalled products from their shelves and to dispose of any that is remaining in their inventory.
If you purchased any onions that are affected by this recall, you should throw them away or return them to the point of purchase for a refund.
If you developed symptoms of food poisoning after eating any of the recalled products, you should contact your doctor immediately.
This recall began on August 10, 2020.
