A company has issued a voluntary recall of a salsa product after three consumers reported finding pieces of glass inside the product, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration confirmed.
Olam Tomato Processors, Inc., has recently pulled three lots of their Mild Chunk Salsa and Medium Chunk Salsa products from shelves.
The recall includes three production codes:
- Mild Chunky Salsa (UPC 3927759137), production code L12142, with the Best By Date June 2015
- Mild Chunky Salsa (UPC 3927759137) production code L04093, with the Best By Date October 2015
- Medium Chunky Salsa (UPC 3927759139) production code L01313, with the Best By Date July 2015
To find the production code, consumers should look on the glass jar itself, right below the cap and above the product label. The labels of the affected product will say “distributed by Greenbrier International, Inc.”
According to the FDA, the popular salsa products were sold nationwide at Dollar Tree and other $1 stores, including Deals, Dollar Express and Dollar Bill$.
In San Diego, there are several Dollar Tree stores, including one on Mira Mesa Boulevard, one on University Avenue and another on Murphy Canyon Road.
The FDA says no other production dates, sizes or varieties of Chunky Salsa products manufactured by Olam Tomato Processors, Inc., are included in this recall.
Though three consumers did find pieces of glass inside the salsa, no injuries have been reported. At this point, it is believed that no product remains in retail distribution.
Consumers who purchased the recalled Chunky Salsa products should not eat the salsa, and should instead return it to the store for a full refund.
