Trader Joe's Is No Longer Selling This Salad

Trader Joe's shoppers have  a couple  of new items to choose from amongst the aisles from drinks to snacks. One item won't be available, though,  due to  a threat of illness.

The lemony Arugula Basil Salad Kit sold at stores nationwide  is that the  subject of a new recall, the grocery chain  and therefore the  U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) just announced.

In an alert posted to its website on May 27 and on the FDA's list of recalls, Trader Joe's says that the supplier of the bagged salad kit recently reported that some may contain egg and wheat—both of which are common allergens—not listed on the label.

Instead,  the sole  ingredients on the 9.75-ounce packaging include arugula, carrots, almonds, and parmesan cheese with a basil lemon vinegarette.

We have been alerted by our supplier of Trader Joe's Lemony Arugula Basil Salad Kit (SKU# 66293) that product with a BEST IF USED BY date code of JUNE 2, 2022 may contain undeclared egg and wheat," the grocery chain outlines  within the  alert. 

If  you bought  any Lemony Arugula Basil Salad Kit with the affected code and have an egg or wheat allergy, please  don't  eat it. We urge you to discard  the merchandise  or return it to any Trader Joe's for a full refund.

No information about how  the difficulty  was discovered is mentioned, but Trader Joe's does state that there  are  no reports about any illnesses or allergic reactions and that all the potentially affected bags of salad are no longer available for purchase.
