RECALL Alert: They Found WHAT In The Food!?

Due to the potential contamination with hard plastic from a permanent marker pen, Trader Joe’s has recently recalled more than 61,000 lbs of chicken soup dumplings.

Reports show that pieces of the marker pen may have been incorporated into the dumplings made by CJ Foods Manufacturing Beaumont Corp.

The same business that operates the German grocery store Aldi Nord also privately owns the Monrovia, California franchise. Trader Joe’s has approximately 530 locations across America.

On March 2, the Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) of the United States Department of Agriculture recalled Trader Joe’s steamed chicken soup dumplings. The California supermarket chain stated that the recalled goods were distributed throughout the country.

The item, offered in 6-oz. boxes with six dumplings wrapped in plastic, was found to have an issue after several customers complained about the hard plastic. The products that were impacted were made on December 7, 2023.

A list of the items that are being recalled may be seen on the website of the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), which said that there have been no verified complaints of injuries caused by the ingestion of these products. Anyone worried about the potential of harm should contact a healthcare practitioner.

According to a report, an official of CJ Foods Manufacturing Beaumont Corporation said the company was investigating the incident that occurred during production. The food manufacturer stated that the safety of its customers is and always will be its first concern.

In the United States, contamination by foreign objects is a leading cause of food recalls. Metal shavings, insect parts, and other foreign items have also found their way into food products, leading to recalls.

Two cookie items sold by Trader Joe’s were recalled in July last year due to concerns that they may have included pebbles. A supplier notified Trader Joe’s, but the retailer did not elaborate on how the pebbles ended up in the cookies.
