This Trader Joe's applesauce is being pulled from shelves because it could contain something... not edible
If you purchased unsweetened applesauce from Trader Joe’s, we have an important message for you. Three types of Trader Joe’s brand applesauce have been recalled. You may want to head to your kitchen cabinets (or fridge) right now and check to see if you have one of these applesauces since the reason for this voluntary recall is pretty frightening.
Trader Joe’s announced the recall on applesauce on February 26th for “potential presence of glass pieces in the product.”
That’s right, there could be glass in your Trader Joe’s unsweetened applesauce.
As applesauce is traditionally a kid-friendly food, this is particularly scary if you have children.
Though adults digesting glass is also a big problem.
Since this could be potentially dangerous, please look and see if you have one of the following applesauces in your home:
Trader Joe’s First Crush Unsweetened Gravenstein Apple Sauce, Trader Joe’s Organic Unsweetened Apple Sauce, and Trader Joe’s All Natural Unsweetened Apple Sauce.
First Crush Unsweetened Gravenstein Apple Sauce and Organic Unsweetened Apple Sauce are available at all locations, but the All Natural Unsweetened Apple Sauce is sold only in Alaska, Arizona, California, Connecticut, Idaho, Louisiana, Nevada, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Oregon, Texas, Utah, and Washington.
Trader Joe’s has already moved the products from its shelves, so you won’t be buying any tainted applesauce from now on. But you need to check the best before dates to see if applesauce you already purchased falls under this recall. The company provided a list for people to refer to:
If you have any of these products, do not eat them. You can either throw it out immediately or take it to your local Trader Joe’s for a full refund.
Stay safe and healthy by making sure to dispose of this applesauce ASAP and confirm that no one in your household ate it.
