The bags affected have the barcode number “00505154” and “BEST BEFORE 07.17.2016TF4.”

Out of an abundance of caution, Trader Joe’s says, all lots of their Raw Cashew Pieces have been removed from store shelves and their sale has been suspended.

No illnesses have been reported as of Tuesday morning.

The company is offering a full refund to those who purchased any Trader Joe’s Raw Cashew Pieces with the specified lot code, “BEST BEFORE 07.17.2016TF4.”

Concerned consumers can call Trader Joe’s Customer Relations at 626-599-3817 or send them an email here.
