The supermarket chain says the recall is being done "out of an abundance of caution" while they investigate the matter, as no illnesses have been reported to date.

Specifically, Trader Joe's is looking for bags labelled "BEST BEFORE 07.17.2016TF4."

"Please do not eat it," the company stated. Instead, the retailer is asking consumers who have purchased the product not to eat it and bring it in for a refund.

The full statement from the company's website reads:
