(WOWK) – Kroger recalled cheese dips sold at stores.
The recall affects stores located:
- West Virginia
- The eastern portions of Tennessee, specifically Johnson City/Kingsport,
- Kentucky, specifically Ashland
- Ohio, specifically Belpre/Marietta/Proctorville
Kroger issued the recall because the cheese dip has the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella. Salmonella can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weak immune systems.
Kroger said no customer illnesses have been confirmed to date.
Kroger was notified on July 31 by the supplier Onions 52 that the store had received red, yellow, and white onions from Thomson International, Inc., which had been a part of the salmonella-related outbreak.
Kroger was notified again on Aug. 1, bulk onions from Thomson International, Inc. were removed from stores and had been identified as receiving the affected product. Kroger determined several in-store made cheese dips may have used red onions from the produce department as an ingredient.
The dips, which are in plastic containers, were sold between May 15, 2020 and August 6, 2020. This includes:
