(NewsNation) — It’s been a rough few weeks for Trader Joe’s — and its customers.
The grocery chain has issued five product recalls in just the last four weeks. Here’s what customers need to know to stay healthy, and potentially, get a refund.
Trader Joe’s on Thursday recalled its “Multigrain Crackers with Sunflower and Flax Seeds.” Boxes with “Best If Used By” dates between 03/01/24 and 03/05/24 may contain metal.
There have been no injuries reported to date, Trader Joe’s said. All potentially affected products have been removed from the shelves and destroyed.
Trader Joe’s advises anyone who purchased or received donations of this product to not eat it. “We urge you to discard the product or return it to any Trader Joe’s for a full refund,” the company wrote.
