The spices included in the recall are: Kroger Ground Cinnamon, Kroger Garlic Powder, Kroger Coarse Ground Black Pepper and Kroger Bac’n Buds. Each sold in its retail stores and have possible contamination from salmonella.
A sample of Kroger Garlic Powder from a store in North Augusta, S.C., 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 late last week recalled all four seasonings produced on the same equipment in the same facility.
The recall covers the products sold in retail stores in portions of Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michigan, Mississippi, Missouri, Ohio, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia and West Virginia. The recalled items also were sold in other Kroger system stores, including Jay C., Dillons, King Soopers, Fry’s, Fred Meyer, Ralphs, Food 4 Less and Smiths.
