Salsa recalled after glass pieces found in jars


FRESNO, CA (WKOW) -- Before you use that salsa, make sure to check the brand, it may be part of a recall.

Olam Tomato Processors Inc. announced a recall of its Mild Chunky Salsa with best-by dates of June 2015 and October 2015, and Medium Chunky Salsa with a best-by date of July 2015.

Company spokeswoman Roxana Janka says glass pieces got into the salsa during the beginning of the manufacturing process, when some of the glass jars were damaged. The pieces were not detected by X-rays at the plant because the machines were not calibrated to detect large glass pieces.

The company says there have been no reports of any injuries.

The salsa is sold at Dollar Tree and Deals, Dollar Express and Dollar Bills stores nationwide.
