A supplier for food retailer Trader Joe's has recalled almost 37,000 pounds of chicken and turkey salad products that may be contaminated with silica and glass fragments, the U.S. Department of Agriculture said.

The ready-to-eat chicken and turkey salads were produced from November 4 - 15, 2017.

The company announced that the supplier informed them of the potential hazard for white meat chicken salad, curried white chicken deli salad and turkey cranberry apple salad. The warning applies to Trader Joe's stores here in California.

In a statement, the chain of grocery stores said the salads potentially affected had the use-by dates 11/10 through to 11/21 and the USDA inspected code P-40299.

The recall impacts about 37,000 pounds of chicken and turkey salad products.

The products subject to recall were shipped to retail locations in Arizona, California, Colorado, Idaho, Louisiana, New Mexico, Nevada, Oklahoma, Oregon, Texas, Utah and Washington.

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.
