Kroger Spices Recalled Due to Salmonella Risk

Check your spice rack for certain Kroger spices that are being recalled because they may contain Salmonella.

The Kroger Co. is recalling Kroger Ground Cinnamon, Kroger Garlic Powder, Kroger Coarse Ground Black Pepper and Kroger Bac’n Buds.

Consumers should not consume these Kroger spices. They may return the products to Kroger stores for a full refund or replacement.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration tested a sample of Kroger Garlic Powder from a store in North Augusta, S.C. and found it was contaminated with Salmonella.

The company said it was issuing a recall for all these Kroger spices out of an abundance of caution because they were produced on the same equipment in the same facility. No illnesses have been associated with the products.

People infected with Salmonella may develop a sickness called salmonellosis. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, there are about 1.2 million cases of salmonellosis annually in the United States, resulting in about 450 deaths. Symptoms include abdominal cramps, fever, diarrhea that may be bloody, nausea, vomiting and headache. Young children, the elderly and those with compromised immune systems are most at risk for severe infection.

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