July 28—Retailer Kroger announced Monday that it is recalling a number of spices from the shelves of stores in 31 states, including Kansas, due to possible salmonella contamination.

Kroger Ground Cinnamon, Kroger Garlic Powder, Kroger Coarse Ground Black Pepper and Kroger Bac’n Buds sold in 17 grocery stores under the Kroger umbrella, including at Dillons locations in Wichita, are being pulled from the shelves, according to a recall alert posted on the supermarket giant’s website.

A sample of Kroger Garlic Powder from a store in South Carolina tested by the Food and Drug Administration was found to be contaminated with salmonella, according to a news release. As of Tuesday morning, no illnesses have been reported in connection with the positive test.

Kroger has more than 2,600 supermarkets and department stores in 34 states under 24 brand names, including Dillons. Customers with questions are being asked to contact Kroger at 1-800-KROGERS, according to the release.
