Trader Joe’s Steamed Chicken Soup Dumplings are a favorite among families looking for a quick and easy snack or meal, especially during the chilly winter months. But a new recall has given consumers pause when it comes to the brand’s staple item. Learn more about the recall here.

Why is Trader Joe’s recalling their Steamed Chicken Soup Dumplings?

According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (USDA), CJ Foods Manufacturing Beaumont Corporation has recalled around 61,839 pounds of Trader Joe’s steamed chicken soup dumpling products that may be contaminated with foreign materials, specifically hard plastic from a permanent marker pen.

The problem was discovered after several consumers filed complaints that they found hard plastic in Trader Joe’s steamed chicken soup dumplings. No injuries or adverse reactions have been reported.

How do I know if my product is affected?

The affected steamed chicken soup dumplings were produced on December 7, 2023, and shipped to Trader Joe’s locations nationwide. Six-ounce boxes with plastic trays containing six pieces of “TRADER JOE’S Steamed Chicken Soup Dumplings” with lot codes “03.07.25.C1-1” and “03.07.25.C1-2” printed on the side of the box are included in the recall. Products subject to recall also bear establishment number “P-46009” inside the USDA mark of inspection.

What do I do if I have an affected item?

The USDA urges those with affected items to throw them out or return them to their local Trader Joe’s. If you have additional questions about what to do or how to receive a refund for affected items, you can reach out to CJ Foods Manufacturing Beaumont Corporation’s Consumer Experience Department at 800-544-6855.
