Trader Joe’s Steamed Chicken Soup Dumplings Recalled

March 4, 2024

We are recalling Trader Joe’s Steamed Chicken Soup Dumplings … due to the potential presence of foreign material (plastic).

Grocery store chain Trader Joe’s in a statement on Saturday as the United States Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced that more than 60,000 pounds of the Trader Joe’s Steamed Chicken Soup Dumplings are being recalled by its California-based producer, CJ Foods Manufacturing Beaumont Corporation.

Why It Matters: The FSIS explains the concern stems specifically from the potential that the dumplings could be contaminated with “hard plastic from a permanent marker pen.” As of Saturday, no confirmed injuries or illness had been reported. Trader Joe’s advises consumers with the impacted products to “discard the product or return it to any Trader Joe’s for a full refund.”

The FSIS shares this description of the impacted products: “6-oz. boxes with plastic trays containing six pieces of ‘TRADER JOE’S Steamed Chicken Soup Dumplings’ with lot codes ‘03.07.25.C1-1’ and ‘03.07.25.C1-2’ printed on the side of the box.” View photos HERE.
