Green Cuisine, the San Fernando company who produces some Trader Joe's products, issued a recall on behalf of the United States Department of Agriculture for prepackaged chicken and turkey salads found at the popular low-priced market on November 18.

Green Cuisine, the California company that makes the salads, is recalling about 36,854 pounds of the chicken and turkey salad products, the USDA announced Saturday.

The products subject to recall bear establishment number "P-40299" inside the USDA mark of inspection.

The offending white meat chicken salads (SKU 98091) and curried white chicken deli salads (SKU 96426) were sold in Arizona, California, Nevada, Utah, Colorado, Louisiana, New Mexico, Oklahoma, and Texas.

Trader Joe's said products with other "inspected" codes were not affected because they were created at separate sites. The FSIS recommends customers not consume the products.

EXAMPLE: date code stickered on package and the affected U.S.D.A.

The good news is that all of the potentially risky products have already been removed from stores, so no future customers should be at risk.

We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience.
