What’s the Problem?
This FDA Recall affects Pacific Gold Onions sold at:
- Trader Joe’s (red onions sold only in Arizona, California, Nevada, and Utah)
- Ralph’s (yellow onions sold only in California stores)
The recalled onions were sold loose in bulk bins, and the red onions have a PLU sticker with the brand name Pacific Gold.
This action stems from a previous recall issued by Thomson International, Inc., which supplied the potentially contaminated onions to Progressive Produce. Thomson onions are the source of a salmonella outbreak responsible for nearly 640 illnesses in 43 states, according to the FDA. The first cases were reported between June 19, 2020, and July 11, 2020.
Consumers who purchased any recalled onions should discard them or return them to the point of purchase for a refund.
Anyone concerned about a potential salmonella infection from recalled onions should contact their physician immediately.
This recall began on August 10, 2020.
