Kroger recalls bagged kale because of Listeria concerns

Kroger is recalling Kroger brand 16-ounce bagged kale because of potential Listeria contamination.

The company’s recall notice says that this recall affects Kroger stores in the following states: Georgia, South Carolina, Alabama, Ohio, Virginia, Kentucky and Tennessee.

Consumers can use the following information to determine whether they have the recalled kale in their homes

  • 16-ounce bag of Kroger branded kale
  • Product UPC: 11110-18170 
  • BEST BY: 09-18-2021

Consumers should return this product to the place of purchase for a full refund.

As of the posting of this recall, there have been no reported illnesses connected to the product.

About Listeria infections

Food contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes may not look or smell spoiled but can still cause serious and sometimes life-threatening infections. People who have eaten any recalled product and developed symptoms of Listeria infection should seek medical treatment and tell their doctors about the possible Listeria exposure.

Also, anyone who has eaten any of the recalled products should monitor themselves for symptoms during the coming weeks because it can take up to 70 days after exposure to Listeria for symptoms of listeriosis to develop.

Symptoms of Listeria infection can include vomiting, nausea, persistent fever, muscle aches, severe headache, and neck stiffness. Specific laboratory tests are required to diagnose Listeria infections, which can mimic other illnesses.

Pregnant women, the elderly, young children, and people such as cancer patients who have weakened immune systems are particularly at risk of serious illnesses, life-threatening infections, and other complications. Although infected pregnant women may experience only mild, flu-like symptoms, their infections can lead to premature delivery, infection of the newborn, or even stillbirth.
