Kroger Recalls Seasonings Due to Health Risk
The Kroger Co. announced a voluntary recall of four different seasoning products because of a possible contamination from salmonella.
About the Health Risk
According to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), four seasonings have been recalled by Kroger after testing linked the products to a possible salmonella contamination.

The recall involves Kroger Ground Cinnamon, Kroger Garlic Powder, Kroger Coarse Ground Black Pepper, and Kroger Bac'n Buds. The FDA urges customers who have purchased the products should not consume them and should return them to a store for a full refund or replacement.
