Trader Joe’s is recalling three varieties of its applesauce because of the potential presence of glass pieces.

Two of the products were sold at Trader Joe’s stores nationwide, according to the recall notice on the grocer’s website. The Trader Joe’s notice, posted Sunday, did not indicate how the problem was discovered or whether there have been any customer complaints or injuries.

However, later Sunday the California company that produced the applesauce, Manzana Products Co. Inc., posted a recall notice with the Food and Drug Administration that reported customers had complained about finding glass in the recalled products.

“All potentially affected products have been removed from store shelves and destroyed,” according to the Trader Joe’s recall notice.

“If you purchased any of these Unsweetened Apple Sauce products with the affected codes, please do not eat it. We urge you to discard the product or return it to any Trader Joe’s for a full refund.”

Consumers should check their homes for the recalled products, which they can identify by looking for the following label information:

  • Trader Joe’s First Crush Unsweetened Gravenstein Apple Sauce with barcode number 00015905 and all best-before dates through Aug. 8, 2018;
  • Trader Joe’s Organic Unsweetened Apple Sauce with barcode number 00194877 and all best-before dates through Oct. 6, 2018; and
  • Trader Joe’s All Natural Unsweetened Apple Sauce with barcode number 00014359 and all best-before dates through Dec. 16, 2018.

The “First Crush” and “Organic” varieties were sold by all Trader Joe’s stores. The “All Natural” variety was sold at Trader Joe’s stores in: Alabama, Arizona, California, Colorado, Idaho, Louisiana, Nevada, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Oregon, Texas, Utah and Washington.
