Lm can contaminate food and cause mild to severe illness to persons who consume food containing Lm. Persons at greatest risk are newborn infants, the elderly, and persons with weakened immune systems. Further information about CRF’s recall can be found on the FDA website at: http://www.fda.gov/Safety/Recalls/ucm497297.htm.

Kroger is removing these items from store shelves and is initiating its customer recall notification system which alerts customers who may have purchased products through register receipt tape messages and phone calls.
