Did you recently buy kale? Don’t eat it before checking to see if it’s part of a new recall.
Baker Farms, which distributes products under the Kroger brand name and Southeastern Grocery’s SEG Grocers brand, recalled its 16 oz. bagged kale with Sept. 18 best-by dates due to contamination of Listeria monocytogenes. The company was notified of a customer testing positive for listeria monocytogenes on Wednesday, according to a company announcement.
The products were distributed in clear plastic between Aug. 30 and Sept. 1 and sold primarily in stores in Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Missouri, Mississippi, North Carolina, New York and Virginia, according to a company announcement posted on the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s website.
Kroger voluntarily recalled its 16 oz. bagged kale product produced by Baker Farms Thursday due to possible listeria monocytogenes contamination. Products were distributed in Kroger grocery stores in Columbus, Nashville and Atlanta divisions that serviced Columbus and Toledo, Ohio; Knoxville, Tennessee; eastern West Virginia; as well as Georgia, Alabama and South Carolina.
