Trader Joe’s is facing yet another recall, this time affecting nearly 5,000 pounds of its store brand Butter Chicken with Basmati Rice, which may be contaminated with listeria bacteria.
The producer of the product, Canadian company Aliya’s Foods Limited, issued a voluntary recall of 4,865 pounds of the frozen food, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
Though 19 cartons of the 12.5-ounce boxes were placed on hold at the distribution center, 240 cartons were shipped from Canada to various Trader Joe’s stores in the U.S., according to the USDA’s Food Safety and Inspection Service.
Authorities are concerned that shoppers may have already bought some of the chicken and rice packets from the grocery chain. The containers feature the product code 2012-10-31 and the lot code 30512.
