CINCINNATI (AP) - There's been a recall of a deli salad sold at some Kroger stores in Kentucky and other states.
Kroger says its Inter-American Products unit voluntarily recalled Deli Chef tri-bean salad due to a potential bacterial contamination. The company says salads sold at some deli counters may contain bacteria that could cause the potentially fatal food-borne illness botulism.
Kroger says no illnesses have been reported.
Consumers should throw out the salads even if they don't look or
smell spoiled and contact the store where it was purchased for a refund.
No other salad products are included in the recall.
Kroger says green beans processed by New Era Canning Co. for the Deli Chef salad were recalled by the company.
