Trader Joe's is recalling three types of salads sold in nine states due to concerns over potential listeria and salmonella contamination.

The grocery chain was alerted by a supplier over the possible contamination of a corn ingredient in the salads, Trader Joe's said in the recall posting on its website.

The products include Trader Joe’s BBQ Flavored Chicken Salad with an SKU code of 84871 and Trader Joe’s Field Fresh Chopped Salad with Grilled Chicken Breast with an SKU code of 99050 sold in Colorado, Louisiana, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Tennessee and Texas.

It also includes Trader Jose’s Mexicali Inspired Salad with an SKU code of 97216 sold in those same six states along with Idaho, Oregon and Washington.

The salads have "best by" states of Oct. 15, 2018, through Oct. 20, 2018.

While no contamination has been confirmed and no illnesses have been reported so far, all of the potentially affected products have been removed from sale and destroyed, according to Trader Joe's.

If you purchased any of the affected products, discard the salad or return it to any Trader Joe's for a full refund.

For more information on the recall, call Trader Joe's Customer Relations at 626-599-3817 from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. PT Monday through Friday.
