DALLAS (CBSDFW) — Kroger announced on Tuesday that the national retailer is recalling four spices due to possible contamination from salmonella.
The recall includes Kroger Ground Cinnamon, Kroger Garlic Powder, Kroger Coarse Ground Black Pepper and Kroger Bac’n Buds.
A sample of garlic powder from a store in South Carolina was tested by the FDA and found to be contaminated with salmonella. To date, no illnesses have been reported in connection with these products.
The company is recalling all four seasonings produced on the same equipment in the same facility out of “an abundance of caution.”
Store under the following names in 31 states are included in the recall: Kroger, Ralphs, Food 4 Less, Foods Co., Fred Meyer, Fry’s, King Soopers, City Market, Smith’s, Dillons, Baker’s, Gerbes, Jay C, Ruler Foods, Pay Less, Owen’s, and Scott’s.
The affected product has been removed from store shelves, and some customers who purchased the products have been contacted through register receipt tape messages and phone calls.
Customers can return the products for a full refund. Anyone with questions can contact Kroger at 1-800-KROGERS.
