ATLANTA -

An Atlanta company is recalling salsa and balela sold under the Trader Joe's brand at stores in six Southern states because of possible listeria contamination.

Simmering Soup Inc. says the voluntary recall applies to mild salsa with a use-by date of Aug. 9 and balela -- a type of Middle Eastern salad -- with a use-by date of July 31.

The company says the products shipped last week to Trader Joe's stores in Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee and southern Virginia.

Simmering Soup says none of its products tested positive for listeria and no illnesses have been reported. But they were made with diced onions processed at a plant where listeria monocytogenes, which can serious infections, was found.

Trader Joe's has removed the recalled foods from store shelves.
