“I ate Trader Joes's Extra Hot Habanero Ghost Pepper Salsa by Trader Joes, and had the worst food posioning of my life for 72 hours. I am a healthy person, and I am convinced that what I experienced could of killed someone, older or younger. The salsa still had 13 days until expiration when I bought it. (Sell by: Jan 19, 2019) (Lot 1024 31218) (Barcode: 0059 4172) (SKU#59417) (Dist. & Sold Exclusively by: Trader Joe's, Monrovia, CA 91016). Seal was in tact, and I ate it right after opening. It tasted really funny, and didn't have the flavor is usually does. After recovering, I contacted the store because I didn't want someone else to get sick. He apologized, then denied my experience, and all he seemed to want to focus on was giving me $2 back. He said he'd check a couple! If he expereinced what I did, he'd have cleared them off the shelf immeadiately. Does not make me feel safe purchasing food from there from now on. How much I paid medically does not even off-set the low prices. Not worth it guys!”
