Recall at Trader Joe's for Salmonella

Bad news all around:  Favorite store chain Trader Joe’s has issued a nationwide recall of its “Trader Joe’s Chocolate Chip Chewy Coated Granola Bars.” It has the potential to contain salmonella, which can cause moderate to severe gastrointestinal problems, including vomiting and abdominal pain. In some people, more severe and long-term illnesses can result.

The contaminated products are for UPC 82818, with “Use by Dates/Lot Codes” 16JUL10H2 and 17JUL10H1. (These codes are marked on the top of the boxes, and stamped on the side of each individual granola bar.)

If you have these products, don’t eat them. Return them to Trader Joe’s for a full refund.
