Baker Farms And Kroger Co’s Bagged Kales Recalled Due To Fear Of Listeria Monocytogenes
Kales that come in bags sold in different Kroger and Winn-Dixie stores are involved in a recent recall order due to fears that they may contain listeria monocytogenes.
Possible Listeria Contamination Behind Recalled Kale
According to different reports, bagged kale offered by companies Baker Farms and The Kroger Co is included in this voluntary recall to deal with the fears that they may possibly contain a contaminant called listeria monocytogenes.
Medical experts suggest that a person infected with listeria may experience the following symptoms: fever and chills, diarrhea, dizziness, and muscle aches. Because of the similarity of the mentioned symptoms to the common flu, it is highly advised that a person seek medical attention immediately if the symptoms continue to persist after taking over-the-counter flu medicine.
Listeria monocytogenes is believed to be extremely harmful to pregnant women, the elderly, very young children, and those who have compromised immune bodily functions.
Fortunately, there were no reported cases of people getting sick from consuming the said bagged kale products made by Baker Farms and The Kroger Co.
