Trader Joe’s has recalled three types of packaged salads after a supplier said there may be shards of glass or hard plastic inside. The recall covers several states, including Arizona.

Over the weekend, the grocery chain said some of the possibly contaminated items included packages of white meat chicken salad, curried white chicken deli salad and turkey cranberry apple salad that expire from Nov. 10 to Nov. 22.

The products are labeled with the U.S. Department of Agriculture's “inspected” code P-40299. Trader Joe’s said products with other “inspected” codes were not affected because they were created at separate sites.

The company apologized and urged customers to discard the products or return them for a refund.
