The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) has issued a recall for approximately 61,839 pounds of steamed chicken soup dumpling products produced by Foods Manufacturing Beaumont Corporation, based in Beaumont, Calif.AHAThe recall comes after reports that the dumplings may contain foreign materials, specifically pieces of hard plastic believed to be from a permanent marker pen.

The affected products were produced on December 7, 2023, and include 6-oz. boxes of “TRADER JOE’S Steamed Chicken Soup Dumplings” with lot codes “03.07.25.C1-1” and “03.07.25.C1-2” found on the box sides.

These items, identifiable by the establishment number “P-46009” within the USDA inspection mark, have been distributed to Trader Joe’s stores across the nation.

The recall was initiated following consumer complaints of finding hard plastic in the dumplings.

While there have been no confirmed reports of injuries or adverse reactions from consuming these products, the FSIS is advising consumers who have purchased the recalled dumplings not to eat them.

Instead, they should either dispose of the products or return them to their place of purchase for a refund.

Consumers who may have these products in their freezers are encouraged to take immediate action to ensure their safety and health.
