Recalled food is never what you want to hear about. This time it's a surprising (to me) item being recalled by the Kroger brand sold at King Soopers stores. Several spices including cinnamon, garlic powder, ground black pepper and Bac'n Buds are being recalled for possible Salmonella contamination.

A sample of Kroger Garlic Powder from a store in North Augusta, S.C. was tested by the FDA and found to be contaminated with salmonella. To date, no illnesses have been reported in connection with these products. Out of an abundance of caution, the company has recalled all four seasonings produced on the same equipment in the same facility.

Customers who have purchased the recalled products are advised not to use them and to return them to a store for full refund or replacement. Those with questions are advised to call Kroger at 800-576-4377.
