Trader Joe’s barbeque chicken salad recalled

July 28, 2012

Federal food inspectors initiated a recall of Trader Joe’s barbeque chicken salads because the onions used in the salad may be contaminated with listeria bacteria.

United States Department of Agriculture officials announced in a press release on Friday that Huxtable’s Kitchen of Vernon is recalling about 5,610 pounds of the salads. The salads were distributed at Trader Joe’s in Arizona, New Mexico, California, Nevada and Texas.

No illnesses related to the salads have been reported. Officials have identified the product as having a use by July 30 and are numbered P-11079.

Listeria is an organism that can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in the elderly, pregnant women, young children and others with weakened immune systems.

    Again “Thanks” to CCN for the story about the recall at Trader Joes. Still nothing in either The Trib, or the PR Press. Could it be that TJs never runs ads in either paper ? The local news papers aer’nt !

    Although I have not had this particular salad, I have been sick 4 different times from other TJ salads…(slow learner?), as recently as last week. I love their salads, but won’t buy any more…just not worth an afternoon and evening of gurgling stomach, pain and spending an inordinate amount of time near the facilities…

    From today’s Washington Post:

    http://www.washingtonpost.com/business/economy/food-borne-illnesses-not-diminishing-cdc-finds/2012/07/28/gJQAaFGxGX_story.html?hpid=z4&wp_login_redirect=0

    “Unlike last year, the CDC released the data without reaching out to consumer groups and other key stakeholders who typically are notified in advance. Instead, the charts and graphs were quietly posted online Friday. The data are compiled annually to show trends for infections commonly transmitted through food and to guide policy decisions.

    “Last year they gave these numbers some prominence,” said Chris Waldrop, a director at the Consumer Federation of America. “It’s very curious that they would quietly publish them on their Web site. . . . These numbers are a way to hold government accountable in reducing food-borne illnesses.”

    CDC officials could not be reached for comment.”

    I love all things TJ but not their chicken salad.

    I sure hope TS survives. Sunday mornings just aren’t the same without his “Sermons on the Net” style of preaching the gospel. : ) Ted? Did you make it thru the night???? Give us one “Praise Jesus” if you did…
