Kroger Recalls Four Seasonings Due to Possible Health Risk

The Kroger Co. announced it is recalling Kroger Ground Cinnamon, Kroger Garlic Powder, Kroger Coarse Ground Black Pepper and Kroger Bac'n Buds sold in its retail stores due to possible contamination from Salmonella. A sample of Kroger Garlic Powder from a store in North Augusta, South Carolina 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. Stores under the following names in the 31 states where Kroger operates are included in this recall: Kroger, Ralphs, Food 4 Less, Foods Co., Fred Meyer, Fry's, King Soopers, City Market, Smith's, Dillons, Baker's, Gerbes, Jay C, Ruler Foods, Pay Less, Owen's, and Scott's. Kroger has removed the potentially affected items from store shelves and initiated its customer recall notification system that alerts customers who may have purchased recalled Class 1 products through register receipt tape messages and phone calls.

Ron Simon & Associates Files First Stuffed Chicken Salmonella Lawsuit Against Koch Meat Co., Inc. and the Kroger Co

Ron Simon & Associates, along with local counsel Meyers & Flowers, filed the first lawsuit stemming from salmonella-contaminated frozen stuffed chicken products manufactured by Aspen Foods, a division of Koch Meat Co. The products were sold at Kroger retail outlets across the nation. The lawsuit was filed against Koch Meat Co., Inc. and The Kroger Co. in Cook County, Illinois on behalf of Colleen Sappington. Colleen consumed Aspen Foods' stuffed chicken Oven Cravers on June 25, 2015, and thereafter began to experience vomiting, abdominal cramps, diarrhea, headaches, fever, and chills. Colleen tried to ride out her illness for a few days before being forced to seek medical attention at an urgent care center on July 1st. After lab tests performed at the urgent care center confirmed that Colleen had tested positive for Salmonella, health officials interviewed Colleen and confirmed that she had purchased and consumed a contaminated Aspen Foods stuffed chicken product. Aspen Foods Recalls Nearly 2 Million Pounds of Stuffed Chicken Products. On June 23, 2015 the US Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) was notified of a cluster of Salmonella Enteritidis illnesses. Working in conjunction with the Minnesota State Departments of Health and Agriculture and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the FSIS found a link between consumption of stuffed chicken products from Aspen Foods (a division of Koch Meat Co. headquartered in Chicago) and victims who had contracted Salmonella Enteritidis.
