July 29, 2015 — Kroger Co. has recalled four seasonings after a sample of garlic powder tested positive for Salmonella. No illnesses have been linked to the products.
Kroger is a major supermarket chain that includes the following store names: 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 company is recalling the following seasonings:
- Kroger Ground Cinnamon
- Kroger Garlic Powder
- Kroger Coarse Ground Black Pepper
- Kroger Bac’n Buds
The recall was issued after a sample of garlic powder from a store in North Augusta, South Carolina tested by the FDA was found to be contaminated with Salmonella. Out of an “abundance of caution,” Kroger recalled all four seasonings produced on the same equipment in the same facility.
Customers who bought the products should not consume them, even if some has already been safely consumed. They should be returned to the store for a full refund.
Salmonella is a bacteria that causes about one million illnesses in the United States every year. Most people develop diarrhea, fever, and abdominal cramps 12-72 hours after infection. The illness can last for up to one week. Healthy adults usually recover without needing medical attention, but some patients need to be hospitalized.
