What's the Problem?
Jan. 2, 2019 - The Trader Joe's recall 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 which may be contaminated with listeria, according to the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA).
This recall affects:
- Trader Joe's Egg Salad 6 Oz. Cups, UPC 0066 6695
- Trader Joe's Old Fashioned Potato Salad 20 oz. trays, UPC 0032 1747
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.
