Kroger recalls seasonings


Possible health risk

Kroger has announced a recall of Kroger Ground Cinnamon, Kroger Garlic Powder, Kroger Coarse Ground Black Pepper and Kroger Bac’n Buds sold in its retail stores due to possible contamination from Salmonella.

A sample of Kroger Garlic Powder from a store in North Augusta, 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. Out of an abundance of caution, the company has recalled all four seasonings produced on the same equipment in the same facility.

Kroger has removed the potentially affected items from store shelves and initiated its customer recall notification system that alerts customers who may have purchased recalled Class 1 products through register receipt tape messages and phone calls.

Kroger is recalling the following items:

• Kroger Ground Cinnamon, 18.3 oz. with a UPC of 1111070034;

• Kroger Garlic Powder, 24.7 oz. with a UPC of 1111070039;

• Kroger Coarse Ground Black Pepper, 17.1 oz. with a UPC of 1111070041;

• Kroger Bac’n Buds, 12 oz. with a UPC of 1111070025.

Customers who have purchased the above products should not consume them and should return them to a store for a full refund or replacement.

Customers who have questions may contact Kroger at 1-800-KROGERS.
