About 97,887 pounds of Trader Joe's chicken patties (ground uncooked chicken) have been recalled in Minnesota, Wisconsin, South Dakota, and all over the USA, because customers complained of finding bones in the patties. Bones may be a natural part of a chicken, but their bones could cut your mouth or throat up if you ate a patty with one hidden in it.

According to The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS), the chicken patty products were produced on various dates from Aug. 16 to Sep. 29, 2021. The following products are subject to recall

  • 1-lb. cardboard packages containing four pieces of “TRADER JOE’S CHILE LIME CHICKEN BURGERS” with lot codes 2281, 2291, 2311, 2351, 2361, 2371, 2441, 2511, 2521, 2531, 2561, 2591, 2601, 2671, or 2721 represented on the label.
  • 9-lb. bulk-pack boxes containing 72 pieces of “SPINACH FETA CHICKEN SLIDERS” with lot codes 2361 or 2631 represented on the label.

The products subject to recall bear establishment number “EST. P-8276” printed near the USDA mark of inspection. These items were shipped to retail locations nationwide.

If you have these in your freezer, dump them. Or, take them back to Trader Joe's for a refund.
