Some Vegetable Products Sold at Kroger Are Being Recalled

Several vegetable products sold at Kroger stores in Georgia, South Carolina and Alabama are being recalled, due to possible listeria contamination.

GHGA Company officials say their ready-to-eat products such as fajita mix, salsas and diced vegetables were sold to Kroger and distributed September 11.

The Food and Drug Administration says the sell-by date has expired and products have been removed from stores, but there are concerns some consumers could still have some at home.

Listeria can cause infections, sometimes fatal, in young children, the elderly and others who have weakened immune systems.  Symptoms of listeria infection include a high fever, headache, nausea and diarrhea.  Seek medical treatment if you have developed any of those symptoms after eating the recalled products.

If you have any of the products on the recall list, return them to Kroger for a full refund.
