Trader Joe’s Recalls Popular Chicken Patties Manufactured In WA

WASHINGTON — Trader Joe’s issued a nationwide recall of two chicken patty products this week after discovering some were contaminated with pieces of bone, the Department of Agriculture Food Safety and Inspection Service announced Wednesday. The recall affected Trader Joe’s locations in Washington and across the United States.

The subject of the recall is two chicken products, Trader Joe’s Chile Lime Chicken Burgers and Spinach Feta Chicken Sliders.

Reports of consumers finding bone fragments in the chile lime burger product resulted in almost 100,000 pounds of potentially contaminated raw chicken being recalled by Kent-based manufacturer Innovative Solutions, which produced the product.

There were no confirmed reports of adverse reactions from eating the products, according to the service. It advised anyone concerned about an injury or illness to contact a health care provider.

Residents who purchased either of the products were urged to throw the food away or return them to the Trader Joe’s of purchase, the service said.

Consumers with questions about the recall can contact Frank Sorba, president of Innovative Solutions Inc., at 206-365-7200 or email him at [email protected].
