Trader Joe’s of Monrovia, CA is issuing a voluntary recall of all codes purchased from 11/9/15 through 12/14/15 of Triple Ginger Brew (SKU 51857) due to reports of unopened bottles potentially bursting. Although the ginger brew does not pose a health risk if consumed, all product has been removed from store shelves and destroyed. No injuries or illnesses have been reported to date.

Customers who have purchased the Trader Joe’s Triple Ginger Brew are encouraged to handle it with care and dispose of it immediately in an outside container.
