WILMINGTON — It’s not a case of déjà vu.
Only three days after Trader Joe’s recalled two brands of cookies due to potentially being contaminated by rocks, another recall took place with the same foreign material — only this time in its falafel.
On Friday, July 28, the grocery store noted its supplier of Trader Joe’s Fully Cooked Falafel (SKU# 93935) informed the company the product “may contain rocks.”
Items were sold in more than 30 states, including North Carolina. They are no longer for sale in stores and have been destroyed, according to the grocer.
Buyers are encouraged to toss the product or return them to Trader Joe’s for a full refund.
The day before the falafel recall, TJ announced its Unexpected Broccoli Cheddar Soup (SKU# 68470) could contain insects. Packages affected have “use by” dates of July 18, 2023, to September 15, 2023.
“No known adverse health effects have been reported to date, and all potentially affected product has been removed from sale and destroyed,” its recall announcement included.
