Kroger kale recalled due to possible listeria contamination

Did you recently buy kale? Don’t eat it before checking to see if it’s part of a new recall.

Baker Farms, which distributes products under the Kroger brand name and Southeastern Grocery’s SEG Grocers brand, recalled its 16 oz. bagged kale with Sept. 18 best-by dates due to contamination of Listeria monocytogenes. The company was notified of a customer testing positive for listeria monocytogenes on Wednesday, according to a company announcement.

The products were distributed in clear plastic between Aug. 30 and Sept. 1 and sold primarily in stores in Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Missouri, Mississippi, North Carolina, New York and Virginia, according to a company announcement posted on the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s website.
