The mixes were sold in a number of states and are being recalled from its Kroger, Dillons, Fry’s, King Soopers, City Market, Smith’s, Food 4 Less, Jay C, Scott’s, Owen’s, Baker’s, Gerbes, Hilander and Pay Less stores.

Four Everyday Spices Are Recalled Due To Salmonella

The country's second largest supermarket is pulling black pepper&mdashand more.

One of the spices in your pantry could be contaminated with salmonella. Kroger, the country's second-largest supermarket chain, has just recalled a big batch of seasonings&mdashgarlic, black pepper, cinnamon, and even bacon bits&mdashfor a possible contamination with the harmful bacteria.

We didn't think black pepper was particularly susceptible to salmonella but after last year's recall at Big Lots, we know now that virtually anything is at risk&mdashfrom chicken to cashews.

The company first spotted salmonella in a sample of garlic powder from a store in North Augusta, South Carolina but the 31 states where Kroger locations operate should all be on the watch. While each store has removed potentially affected item from its shelves, you may have taken home a contaminated bottle of seasoning during the in-between. If you shop at Kroger, Ralphs, Food 4 Less, Foods Co., Fred Meyer, Fry's, King Soopers, City Market, Smith's, Dillons, Baker's Gerbes, Jay C, Ruler Foods, Pay Less, Owen's, Scott's, check your spice containers for the following UPC codes:

  • Ground Cinnamon, 18.3 ounces: 1111070034
  • Garlic Powder, 24.7 ounces: 1111070039
  • Black Pepper, 17.1 ounces: 1111070041
  • Bac'n Buds, 12-ounces: 1111070025

If you've got one of these in your pantry, return it to a store for a full refund or replacement. Thankfully, no illnesses have been reported however consumers should still take caution. Especially if this could somehow be the new bacteria-resistant salmonella. Cringe.
