The chicken patty products were produced on various dates from Aug. 16 to Sep. 29, 2021, according to the news release. The following products are subject to recall:

  • 1-pound 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.

There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumers eating this product, the FDA said.
