What’s the Problem?

Jan. 2, 2019 – The Trader Joe’s recall [1] was initiated after Bakkavor received notification from Almark Foods Inc., of Gainesville, Georgia, that it supplied certain lots of Broken Egg White products in 20 lb pails that may be contaminated with listeria, according to the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA).

  • Trader Joe’s Egg Salad 6 Oz. Cups, UPC  0066 6695

Both of these products feature “USE BY” dates up through and including “12/27/19,” FDA said. If you purchased any items matching this description, you should discard them immediately or return to the point of purchase for a refund.
