Kroger Recalls Several Spices Due to Salmonella Contamination Risk

Kroger recently recalled four of its store-brand spices after it discovered a possible risk of contamination from Salmonella. Those spices would have been sold at Kroger grocery stores in sections of Ohio, Kentucky, Indiana, Georgia, Alabama, South Carolina, North Carolina, Virginia, Michigan, Illinois, Tennessee, Missouri, Arkansas, West Virginia, Mississippi, Louisiana and Texas. Items may also have been sold at other stores in the Kroger system, including King Soopers, Fry’s, Fred Meyer, Ralphs, Smiths, Food 4 Less and Jay C. Dillons.

The products affected by the recall include:

  • Kroger Ground Cinnamon (the 18.3 oz. packages) with a sell by date of May 19 18PS4
  • Kroger Garlic Powder (the 24.7 oz. packages) with a sell by date of May 18 17PS4
  • Kroger Coarse Ground Black Pepper (the 17.1 oz. packages) with a sell by date of May 18 18PS4 and May 19 18PS4
  • Kroger Bac’n Buds (the 12.0 oz. packages) with a sell by date of May 20 18PS4

The recall was issued after a sample of the garlic powder sold at a store in North Augusta, South Carolina was tested by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and it was contaminated with Salmonella. As of now there have been no illnesses reported in connection with any of these products, but the company volunteered to recall all four of these seasonings produced by the same equipment at the same facility out of caution. Customers with any of these products are advised to return them to the store for a full refund or a replacement.

Salmonella causes approximately one million sicknesses in the United States every year, including 19,000 hospital stays and 380 deaths. Symptoms include fever, abdominal cramps and diarrhea between 12 and 72 hours after infection. Illnesses typically last between four and seven days.
