FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – October 31, 2013 – World Class Distribution of Fontana, California is voluntarily recalling one specific lot of Trader Joe’s Southwest Salad (SKU 56077) with a “Use by Date 11/2/13”, because it may not list soy in the ingredients. People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to soy run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume these products. No illnesses have been reported to date.

The recall affects only Trader Joe’s Southwest Salads bearing the USE BY Date 11/2/13 packaged in 9 oz. plastic clamshell. The Use by Date is printed on the front label to the right.

The 1,861 salads possibly affected were distributed to Trader Joe’s stores located in Arizona, California, Nevada, New Mexico, Utah and Texas. No other lots, products or stores are affected.

The voluntary recall was initiated by World Class Distribution after Trader Joe’s discovered that an incorrect bottom label was attached on some packages within one lot.

Customers who have purchased the Southwest Salad may return it to Trader Joe’s for a full refund. Customers with questions may contact the company at 1-909-574-4140, 8 AM – 4:30 PM, PST, Monday-Friday.
