Top 10 Articles of 2023 – No. 4: Trader Joe’s Issues 4th Food Recall

Join us as we look back at ProFood World’s most popular articles of 2023. It wasn’t good news for Trader Joe’s at No. 4.

Trader Joes Fully Cooked Falafel

In one week in August, Trader Joe’s had recalled its Almond Windmill Cookies, Dark Chocolate Chunk and Almond Cookies, Broccoli Cheddar Soup, and, reported here, its Fully Cooked Falafel.

Trader Joe’s has recalled yet another food product—its fourth so far—in a single week. The latest recall involves the company’s Fully Cooked Falafel (which reportedly was sold in 35 states and Washington, D.C.), due to the possibility it might contain rocks. Trader Joe’s Almond Windmill Cookies and Dark Chocolate Chunk were recalled for the same reason, while the grocer issued a recall for its Unexpected Broccoli Cheddar Soup because the product might contain insects.

All four products have been removed from store shelves and destroyed, and Trader Joe’s officials have instructed customers who bought any of the items to throw them away or return them to one of the company’s stores for a full refund.
