Well-known grocery retailer Kroger has been a go-to name for spices and seasonings and has a presence in many American kitchens. But hold the ground cinnamon and black pepper — they've been recalled due to possible contamination from salmonella.
The FDA tested and found the health risk while sampling Kroger Garlic Powder from the North Augusta store in South Carolina. As a result, Kroger has recalled the following seasonings that shared equipment with the contaminated powder:
- Kroger Ground Cinnamon (18.3 oz) — Sell by: May 19
- Kroger Garlic Powder (24.7 oz) — Sell by: May 18
- Kroger Coarse Ground Black Pepper (17.1 oz) — Sell by: May 18/19
- Kroger Bac'n Buds (12.0 oz) — Sell by: May 20
Although there haven't been any illnesses reported to date, consumers should discontinue use until further notice and return the affected products for a full refund or replacement.
