(CNN/FDA) — Trader Joe’s is voluntarily recalling packages of its store-brand raw cashew pieces over possible salmonella contamination.

The product was sent to stores in more than two dozen states.

The company is pulling them from the shelves and they’re asking customers to throw the product out or return it to any Trader Joe’s store for a full refund.

The FDA reports that the cashew pieces comes in a 16 ounce, clear, non-resealable plastic package (with a barcode number of 00505154) and with the following lot code, “BEST BEFORE 07.17.2016TF4.” The “BEST BEFORE” information can be found on the backside of the package above the barcode.

The product was distributed only to Trader Joe’s stores in Connecticut, Delaware, Georgia, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Tennessee, Vermont, Virginia, Washington, Washington D.C. and Wisconsin.

Trader Joe’s says no one has gotten sick and they’re doing this out of an abundance of caution.
