    Trader Joe's announced Sunday it was adding one type of burrito it sells in stores to a recall already affecting three types of salads. The grocer says the four products may have been contaminated with listeria or salmonella.

    A news release on the Trader Joe's website said the recall affects Trader Joe's Carnitas with Salsa Verde Burrito, Trader Jose's Mexicali Inspired Salad, Trader Joe's BBQ Flavored Chicken Salad and Trader Joe's Field Fresh Chopped Salad with Grilled Chicken Breast. The salads affected have "Best By" dates between Oct. 15 through Oct. 20, while all the burritos were recalled.

    The release said a supplier warned a corn ingredient used in the salads "may have the potential to be contaminated with listeria monocytogenes and/or salmonella."

    Trader Joe's said no contamination has been confirmed and no illnesses have been reported. The grocery chain added that potentially affected products were removed from shelves and destroyed.
