Consumers who have purchased these products should throw them away or return them to the store, the USDA.

According to Trader Joe's website, the recall affects white meat chicken salad, curried white chicken deli salad and turkey cranberry apple salad sold in the following states: Arizona, California, Nevada, Utah, Colorado, Louisiana, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Texas, Idaho, Oregon and Washington. The recalled salads all have a USDA inspected code of P-40299.

Since the recalled salads have use-by dates between November 10 to November 12, the potentially contaminated salads will likely be residing in someone's refrigerator.

The good news is that all of the potentially unsafe products have already been removed from stores, so no future customers should be at risk.
