The NJ product liability attorneys at Breslin and Breslin are reporting that Trader Joe's has issued a recall on its Triple Ginger Brew after reports that unopened glass bottles of the soda exploded on shelves.
"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," Trader Joe's said in a press release.
No injuries or illnesses have yet been reported, the release said.
Trader Joe's has 11 New Jersey stores in West Windsor, Millburn, Westfield, Florham Park, Clifton, Edgewater, Wayne, Paramus, Westwood, Shrewsbury, and Marlton.
"This precautionary action comes after the company received inquiries from customers that had experienced unopened bottles shattering or bursting," Trader Joe's said. "The potentially affected product was distributed to Trader Joe's stores nationwide."
The product has been removed from store shelves.
Trader Joe's spokeswoman Alison Mochizuki said the company declined to comment further.
Trader Joe's - a specialty American grocery store chain - describes the non-alcoholic drink on its website as packed with "a substantial amount of fresh ginger that's added during the brewing process."
Coming in flavors such as "Gingerbread" and "Triple Ginger Snaps," the website states the soda is packaged in "an old-fashioned, emerald green, 750-milliliter glass bottle."
