CINCINNATI -- Georgia inspectors detected Listeria monocytogenes, a deadly bacterium, in a package of Kroger brand smoked salmon dip, prompting a product recall, according to the Georgia Department of Agriculture.
No one has been reported ill from the contamination found in the 7.5 oz. package size of the dip, but a spokesman in Kroger's Atlanta-area office was quoted in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution as saying that the discovery could affect multiple locations and has prompted a multi-state recall.
The test results came in Sunday and state officials notified the chain yesterday morning, said Georgia Commissioner of Agriculture Tommy Irvin.
