Olam Chunky Salsa Recall Issued Due to Glass Shard Contamination

Chunky salsa sold at Dollar Tree and similar discount stores has been recalled, due to reports that it may be contaminated with glass fragments that pose a potential laceration risk for consumers.

The Mild and Medium Chunky Salsa recall was announced by the FDA on July 22, after at least three consumers reported finding glass in the salsa.

Although there have been no injury reports in connection with the recalled salsa, the manufacturer, Olam Tomato Processors, Inc., has determined that jars from at least three different production codes may contain large pieces of glass. Company officials indicate that the glass may have gotten into the jars during the manufacturing process when some of the jars broke.
