A salmonella scare has prompted Kroger Co. to recall two onion soups and dip mixes.
An ingredient in Kroger Onion Sup & Dip Mix and Kroger Beefy Onion Soup & Mix may have been contaminated with the bacteria, the grocer said.
The recalled mixes were sold in several states, including Ohio.
According to a press release (pdf) on Kroger’s Web site, the following store names are included in the recall: Kroger, Dillons, Fry’s, King Soopers, City Market, Smith’s, Food 4 Less, Jay C, Scott’s, Owen’s, Baker’s, Gerbes, Hilander and Pay Less.
To this date, no illnesses have been reported in connection to the recalled products. However, in immune compromised people and the young and old, salmonella infection can be fatal.
The grocer advises consumers not to eat the recalled products and to return them to any store for a refund or replacement.
Call Kroger at 1-800-632-6900 or visit their Web site for more information.
