Manzana Products Co. Inc. is voluntarily recalling three different types of Trader Joe’s apple sauces because of the potential presence of glass pieces.
The three applesauces recalled are:
- Trader Joe’s All Natural Unsweetened Apple Sauce
- Trader Joe’s Organic Unsweetened Apple Sauce
- Trader Joe’s First Crush Gravenstein Unsweetened Apple Sauce
Each apple sauce is packaged in a 24-ounce glass jar, and customers can find the “best before” date stamped on the top of the lid.
The recall was initiated after the company received customer reports of glass found in some of these products.
The company said that all products have been removed from store shelves and destroyed.
Customers who have purchased the products listed above should not consume them. They may return them to Trader Joe’s for a full refund or throw them away.
Call Manzana Products Co. Inc. at 707-823-5313 with any questions.
Swallowing glass can pose serious health concerns. Sharp foreign objects, like glass, can cause laceration, puncture or other physical injury to someone’s teeth, jaw, tongue, perioral tissue, pharynx or esophagus. Once swallowed, glass or any foreign body can also cause injuries to the stomach, intestine or rectum while passing through the lower gastrointestinal tract. In some cases, the foreign matter cannot be passed and requires surgery.
Another concern of swallowing a foreign object, like glass, is the choking hazard. If a shard of glass is caught in a person’s throat, this can result in hypoxic brain injury or asphyxia related death.
