(BANT) – Trader Joe’s is apologizing to customers after being forced to issue a recall for a batch of its own brand of Caesar salad with chicken breast and dressing.

The recall came in an announcement on the company’s website. You can read it below:

“To Our Valued Customers:

We’ve been notified by our supplier of Trader Giotto’s Caesar Salad with Chicken Breast (SKU 06832)­—sold only in our CA, CO, ID, LA, NV, OK, OR, TX, UT, and WA stores­—that product with the USE BY 06/28 date code may contain undeclared fish (anchovies), wheat, and soy, which are not listed in the ingredient panel. Additionally, these packages may be missing the statement “May Contain Traces of Shellfish.”

People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to fish (anchovies), wheat, or soy run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume this product.

No adverse reactions have been reported to date.

All affected product was removed from sale, upon discovery that the Caesar Salad with Chicken Breast with the USE BY 06/28 code was mistakenly labeled with the “Trader Joe’s Chicken & Roast Beet Salad” ingredient panel on the back of the package. Trader Joe’s is working closely with the vendor to immediately correct and prevent packaging errors of this nature.

Customers with fish (anchovies), wheat, or soy allergy concerns who have purchased this Caesar Salad with Chicken Breast with the USE BY 06/28 code are urged not to eat it. Please discard it or bring it into any Trader Joe’s store for a full refund.

If you have any questions, you may call Trader Joe’s Customer Relations at (626) 599-3817 [Monday through Friday, 6:00 am to 6:00 pm Pacific Time] or send us an email.

We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience.”
