Trader Joe’s, known for offering unique foods for prices cheaper than Whole Foods, is beloved by those who frequent their compact nationwide locations. But this year it’s been getting hit by repeated recalls.

In February, they recalled three brands of their popular Unsweetened Apple Sauce due to the “potential presence of glass pieces in the product.” Ouch! This followed recalls regarding undeclared dairy product found in their Harvest Whole Wheat Bread and glass pieces found in their Sierra Nevada Beer.

In March, they had to advise their customers to return their Trader Jose’s Breakfast Burritos after a few customers found pieces of hard plastic inside the food. Yikes! Not a whole lot more fun to bite down on than glass.

Then in May, the labels of Trader Joe’s beloved Mikaway Chocolate Chocolate Mochi Ice Cream failed to mention the product contained peanuts. Definitely not good news to anyone with a severe peanut allergy.

Just this week, instead of glass or plastic, it was metal pieces that were found in a store product. This time it was Trader Joe’s Matcha Green Tea Ice Cream.

And now they’re recalling their Grainless Granola because of the possible presence of Listeria monocytogenes.

There haven’t been any illnesses reported yet, but Trader Joe’s is taking this danger seriously. They’ve destroyed all their potentially affected products and have asked customers to throw away or return their Grainless Granola if purchased in one of 23 states.
