WASHINGTON — The Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS), a branch of the US Department of Agriculture, issued a public health alert for a Trader Joe’s ready-to-eat chicken salad product that may contain cashews, a known allergen that was not declared on the product label. Because the items are no longer available for purchase, a recall was not issued.
The following products, which were produced on March 4, are subject to the health alert:
- 12-oz clear plastic trays containing “TRADER JOE’S Wine Country WHITE CHICKEN SALAD WITH Cranberries & Pecans.” with a best by date of 3/12/2023.
The Trader Joe’s chicken salad product bears the establishment number “P-34834” inside the USDA mark of inspection. The chicken salad was shipped to retail locations in Idaho, Oregon and Washington.
Trader Joe’s notified FSIS of the problem after it received a consumer complaint that cashews were found in the chicken salad product.
There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption.
