FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE -- Austin, TX -- January 31, 2007 -- Effective immediately, Whole Foods Market is voluntarily recalling 6,000 jars of a 32,000-jar lot of its 365 Everyday Value Kalamata Olive Tapenade because the product may contain glass fragments, which may cause injury if ingested.
The code for the product is found on the top of the lid and the number is: B.B. 14/09/2009 L 257/06 with time stamps ranging from 14:00 through 16:00.

It comes in an 8.12 ounce jar with a purple and brown label. The barcode number (UPC) for the product is 0009948241757.
