Some General Thoughts on Food Safety

At Trader Joe’s, nothing is more important than the health and safety of our customers and Crew Members. It is with this in mind that we cover the daily work needed to make certain our products meet our stringent food-safety expectations.

While there are aspects of our product supply-chain beyond our direct control, we will never leave to chance the safety of the products we offer.  We err on the side of caution and are proactive in addressing issues.  We take action quickly, aggressively investigating potential problems and removing product from sale if there is any doubt about its safety or quality.

We value information and clear communication. Should a recall become necessary, we waste no time in providing our customers details relevant to our products. Our recall-related communications go well beyond regulatory requirements: we share news through in-store signs, on our website, and through email alerts.

With more than five decades of experience working directly with the producers of our products, we stand by our proactive practices and are continually improving our food-safety processes. We take these matters seriously—personally, even, as our families eat and drink TJ's products, too.
