Trader Joe’s, Walmart both dealing with cashew recalls

For TJ’s, product recalls continue to pile up

Trader Joe’s continues to get caught in product recalls.

On Monday, cashew company Wenders LLC recalled specific production lots of Trader Joe’s Nuts — 50% Less Sodium Roasted & Salted Whole Cashews because of the potential that they might be contaminated with salmonella.

The product was sold in 16 states: Alabama; Arkansas; Arizona; California; Colorado; Idaho; Kansas; Louisiana; New Mexico; Nevada; Oklahoma; Oregon; Tennessee; Texas; Utah; and Washington.

The packages come from either India or Vietnam with the SKU Number 37884.

To date, no illnesses have been reported.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) caught the issue through routine testing during the import process which indicated at least one of the recalled lots tested positive for the presence of salmonella.

Lately, product recalls have become synonymous with the Trader Joe’s name. Earlier this month, the retailer recalled its Steamed Chicken Soup Dumplings product and during the second half of 2023 Trader Joe’s made a total of six product recalls due to everything from rocks to bugs.

Trader Joe’s had not responded to a request for comment in time for publication of this story.

Walmart has also been caught in a recent cashew recall. Last week, the FDA announced the voluntary recall of Great Value Honey Roasted Cashews produced by John B. Sanfilippo & Son, Inc., because the label did not contain allergen warnings. The recalled product came in an 8.25-ounce plastic can with a blue wrap around the label and a best used by date of July 8, 2025.

A consumer notified John B. Sanfilippo & Son, Inc., that a can of honey roasted cashews actually contained coconut cashews.

“An investigation identified that a limited number of incorrect honey roasted cashew labels were applied to the plastic cans of coconut cashews during the manufacturing process,” the company said.

No adverse reactions have been reported.
