In brief: Unknown
Because fda does not regulate/monitor nutritional supplements, it is up to the manufacturer to provide in-house testing and quality control.
This is a reason for Lovaza (prescription omega-3 fatty acids) to exist; as a prescription medication, it is much more likely to contain what it claims. I am unaware of which company makes trader joe's supplement.This is the long way of saying "i don't know.".

In brief: Who knows?
It's not fda regulated.
But i suspect you can trust trader joe - they have a reputation to uphold.
