Trader Joe's just can't catch a break lately. Earlier this year, the grocery chain recalled its chicken salad and onion products over a Listeria scare, and then it got caught up in the Sunland peanut salmonella outbreak. Now it's recalling another product.
Aliya's Foods, the producer behind “Trader Joe’s Butter Chicken with Basmati Rice,” is recalling 4,865 pounds of the frozen product because they may be contaminated with Listeria.
About 240 cartons of the butter chicken, which was imported from Canada, have already been distributed to Trader Joe's stores in New York, Massachusetts, Virginia, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Maryland, North Carolina, Connecticut, Florida, New Hampshire, South Carolina, Delaware, the District of Columbia, Maine and Rhode Island.
The USDA's Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) is worried that consumers may have already purchased the ready-to-eat dish; anyone who thinks they may have purchased a recalled product should check its label. It's stamped with the product code “2012-10-31″ and lot code “30512.”
