CINCINNATI - The Kroger Co.'s Inter-American Products unit is voluntarily recalling its Deli Chef tri-bean salad due to a potential bacterial contamination.
The company said that salads sold at some of its deli counters may contain Clostridium botulinum, which could cause the potentially fatal food-borne illness botulism.
While no illnesses have been reported, Kroger said it is encouraging consumers to throw out the salads even if they don't look or smell spoiled, and to contact the store where they purchased the product for a refund.
Kroger said it had sold the salads at stores in Colorado, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Michigan, Missouri, Nebraska, Ohio, New Mexico, Utah, Washington, West Virginia and Wyoming.
No other salad products are included in the recall, Kroger said.
