(AP)Trader Joe’s says it has recalled several packaged salads — including in Washington state — after a supplier said shards of glass or hard plastic may be inside.

The grocery chain said Saturday on its website that packages of white-meat chicken salad, curried white-chicken deli salad and turkey-cranberry apple salad sold in some areas that expire from Nov. 10-21 could be contaminated.

Turkey-cranberry salads sold in California, Arizona, Nevada, Utah, Idaho, Oregon or Washington are at risk.

The warning applies to white-meat chicken and curried white-chicken deli salads sold in Arizona, California, Nevada, Utah, Colorado, Louisiana, New Mexico, Oklahoma or Texas.

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