USDA issues public health alert for Trader Joe’s frozen food that may contain rocks

The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food and Safety Inspection Service (FSIS) issued a public health alert Wednesday for a frozen pilaf sold at Trader Joe’s grocery stores after multiple complaints about rocks in the food.

The product, a frozen ready-to-eat chicken, lentil and caramelized onion pilaf, was produced from Nov. 1, 2023, through Jan. 19, 2024.

The alert specifically affects the 14-ounce plastic package of “Trader Joe’s Chicken, Lentil & Caramelized Onion Pilaf” with saffron basmati rice, dark chicken meat, dates and golden raisins. The product’s establishment number is P-45322.

A recall was not requested because the product is no longer sold in stores, but the health alert is to warn people who may have the product in their freezer to either toss it or return it.

The issue was discovered after the grocery store notified the FSIS of “multiple consumer complaints of rocks in the chicken pilaf,” the USDA said. One consumer did report a dental injury from the product.

The FSIS said there haven’t been any additional reports of injury or illness from consuming the food.
