Uh oh! Trader Joe's stores have recalled a healthy snack over concerns it could be contaminated with salmonella.

My go-to snack from Trader Joe's is their 50% Less Salt Roasted & Salted Whole Cashews. I like the taste and the energy these nuts give me, and they're salted JUST enough to give them some flavor but not make me feel bad. They're delicious.

I haven't bought any of my favorite cashews from Trader Joe's lately, and that's probably a good thing.

Trader Joe's has just recalled that very snack over contamination concerns.

According to the Food & Drug Administration, salmonella in the human body can bring on nausea, diarrhea, fever, vomiting, and belly pain.

The FDA says bacteria are particularly harmful to young kids, the elderly, and those who are immunocompromised.

Are the Nuts I Bought from Trader Joe's in New Jersey Contaminated?

It's very unlikely that the cashews falling under this current recall are contaminated. According to 6abc.com, the recalled nuts were sold in 16 states, but not New Jersey. Still, there's no harming in checking yours if you have a batch in your pantry.

Locally, Trader Joe's has stores in Marlton, Cherry Hill, and Philadelphia.
