Trader Joe’s Recalls Cashews Due to Potential Salmonella Contamination

Trader Joe's 50 Percent Less Salt Roasted and Salted Whole Cashews

Trader Joe’s announced on March 17th, 2024, that it is recalling Trader Joe’s 50% Less Salt Roasted and Salted Whole Cashews because they may be contaminated with Salmonella.

The recalled cashews have a SKU# 37884 and were sold only in AL, AR, AZ, CA, CO, ID, KS, LA, NM, NV, OK, OR, TN, TX, UT, and WA stores. They have lot numbers and best-by dates as follows:

  • Lot No: T12139 – Best Before Feb 21 2025
  • Lot No: T12140 – Best Before Mar 01 2025
  • Lot No: T12141 – Best Before Mar 08 2025
  • Lot No: T12142 – Best Before Mar 10 2025

If you purchased any of these cashews, Trader Joe’s says to discard them or return them to any Trader Joe’s store for a full refund.

The FDA stated that no illnesses have been reported to date. They said the problem was found during routine testing by the FDA when the cashews were imported, and at least one of the recalled lots tested positive for the presence of Salmonella.

Salmonella can cause diarrhea, fever, vomiting, and abdominal cramping. It can cause serious illness in infants, young children, older adults, or people with weakened immune systems.

Customers with questions can contact Trader Joe’s Customer Relations at (626) 599-3817 Monday through Friday, 6:00 am to 5:00 pm Pacific Time or send Trader Joe’s an email.
