Trader Joe's Salsa, Balela Recalled In Six States

Posted: Updated:

ATLANTA (AP) - An Atlanta company is recalling salsa and balela sold under the Trader Joe's brand at stores in six Southern states because of possible listeria contamination.

Simmering Soup Inc. said the voluntary recall applies to mild salsa with a use-by date of Aug. 9 and balela -- a type of Middle Eastern salad -- with a use-by date of July 31.

The company said the products shipped last week to Trader Joe's stores in Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee and southern Virginia.

Simmering Soup said none of its products tested positive for listeria and no illnesses have been reported. But they were made with diced onions processed at a plant where listeria monocytogenes, which can serious infections, was found.

Trader Joe's has removed the recalled foods from store shelves.
