USDA Issues Recall for 36,000 Pounds of Poultry Salads for Containing Glass

There is nothing worse than realizing you have a recalled product in your refrigerator right now. Luckily, the USDA is quick to notify customers of potentially harmful products. First, there was the massive vegetable recall not too long ago, and a major poultry recall that potentially had harmful bacteria. Now, the USDA issued a recall for over 36,000 pounds of Green Cuisine chicken salad and turkey salad products that may contaminated with extraneous materials. These materials could be hard silica and glass fragments.

The ready-to-eat chicken salads and turkey salads were made between November 4, 2017, and November 15, 2017. These specific products are subject to recall, per the USDA release, from Trader Joe's.
