According to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Kroger Company issued a recall of its 16-Ounce Kroger Bagged Kale because of potential Listeria Monocytogenes contamination. The Kroger Co. recalled Baker Farms 16-ounce Kroger bagged kale products nationally. Listeria monocytogenes is a microorganism that can lead to severe and sometimes fatal infections in the elderly, frail, young children, or individuals who have weak immune systems. Healthy people who are exposed to Listeria monocytogenes can suffer only short-term symptoms such as severe headache, high fever, stiffness, abdominal pain, nausea, and diarrhea. Listeria monocytogenes infections may also cause stillbirths and miscarriages among pregnant women.
This kale recall includes 16-ounce bags of Kroger brand Kale with a best by date of 09-18-2021 and a UPC code of 11110-18170. The information is printed on the front side of the package, just below the light blue bar.
The affected kale products were retailed in Kroger grocery stores located in the Nashville, Columbus, and Atlanta Divisions, which serves parts of Ohio, Tennessee, West Virginia, Alabama, Georgia, and South Carolina. Customers who purchased the recalled kale product are advised to throw the kale packages away or return the products to their local Kroger for a complete refund.
