July 01, 2016
To Our Valued Customers:
We've been notified by our supplier of Trader José's Mexicali Inspired Salad with Chili Seasoned Chicken (SKU 97216)—sold only in our AL, FL, GA, NC, SC, TN & Southern VA stores—that product with BEST BY date codes from 05/18/16 through 07/03/16 may have received the wrong label on the back of the package and may contain undeclared wheat.
People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to wheat run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume this product.
No adverse reactions have been reported to date.
All affected product was removed from sale, upon discovery that some Mexicali Inspired Salad with Chili Seasoned Chicken with BEST BY date codes from 05/18/16 through 07/03/16 were packaged with an incorrect back label. The Salad's top label is correct, but the incorrect back label neglects to include soy sauce as an ingredient; the source of the wheat. Trader Joe's is working closely with the vendor to immediately correct and prevent packaging errors of this nature.
Customers with wheat concerns who have purchased this Mexicali Inspired Salad with Chili Seasoned Chicken with the BEST BY date codes from 05/18/16 through 07/03/16 are urged not to eat it. Please discard it or bring it into any Trader Joe's store for a full refund.
