Ceasar Salad Sold at Trader Joe’s Recalled for Undeclared Allergens

Posted on November 4, 2013 by


Ghiringhelli Specialty Foods of Vallejo, California is recalling one specific lot of Trader Giotto’s Caesar Salad (SKU 05161) with a “Use By 11/03” date, because it may not list wheat, soy and fish (anchovy) in the ingredients. No illnesses have been reported to date.

The recall affects only Trader Giotto’s Caesar Salad bearing the “USE BY 11/03” date packaged in 8.5 oz. plastic clamshell. The Use By date is located immediately above the front label.

The 709 salads possibly affected were distributed to Trader Joe’s stores located in Northern California, Reno and Carson City, Nevada. No other lots, products or stores are affected.

The  recall was initiated by Ghiringhelli Specialty Foods after Trader Joe’s discovered that an incorrect bottom label was attached on some packages within one lot.

Customers who have purchased the Caesar Salad may return it to Trader Joe’s for a full refund. Customers with questions may contact Ghiringhelli Specialty Foods at (707) 561-7670, 8 AM – 4:30 PM, PST, Monday-Friday.
