In an official statement recently, the retailer informed customers that its unexpected Broccoli Cheddar Soup, with use-by dates ranging from 07/18/23 to 09/15/23, might contain insects.

The next day, Trader Joe’s made another announcement, cautioning customers that its fully cooked Falafel could potentially contain rocks.

“All potentially contaminated products have been swiftly removed from store shelves,” said the company. It also urged customers to discard any affected item or return it to any store for a full refund.

The Falafel was sold in stores in Alabama, Alaska, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Massachusets, Maryland, Maine, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, North Carolina, Nebraska, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Vermont, Wisconsin and Washington, D.C.

This marks the third recall announced by Trader Joe’s within a week. In an earlier incident this month, the company recalled its Dark Chocolate Chunk, Almond Cookies, and Almond Windmill Cookies after discovering that rocks had inadvertently made their way into the ingredients.

“At Trader Joe’s, you won’t find a lot of branded items. Instead, you’ll discover a store full of unique and interesting products, along with everyday basics, in the Trader Joe’s label,” said the company’s website.
