AUSTIN, TEXAS. January 31, 2007. Effective immediately, Whole Foods Market is voluntarily recalling 6,000 jars of a 32,000-jar lot of its 365 Everyday Value Kalamata Olive Tapenade because the product may contain glass fragments, which may cause injury if ingested.
The code for the product is found on the top of the lid and the number is: B.B. 14/09/2009 L 257/06 with time stamps ranging from 14:00 through 16:00. Jars with time stamps within this range should be discarded and not consumed. The recalled product was distributed nationwide to Whole Foods Market stores. It comes in an 8.12 ounce jar with a purple and brown label. The barcode number (UPC) for the product is 0009948241757. The decision for the recall came after the Company received two reports in Texas of glass being found in the product.
Customers can return the affected product to their local store for a full refund. Any questions or concerns may be directed to Whole Foods Market at 512/542-0656 or PrivateLabel.CustomerService@WholeFoods.com.
