Cilantro Recall: What Not to Buy At Trader Joe's
Trader Joe's is recalling several cilantro products that may contain salmonella. If you're looking for that spicy Thai style pasta salad with chicken and rib meat in the ready-made section, it won't be there until further notice. If you're already sick, the lawyers are all over it. Of course, you can always return any of the contaminated items for a full refund, and an apology we hope. Turn the page for Trader Joe's November 5th note to its customers.
