Kroger recalls cheese dips due to possible salmonella contamination
PARKERSBURG, W.Va (WTAP) - Kroger is recalling cheese dips sold at stores located in Belpre, Marietta, Proctorville, West Virginia, Virginia, Tennessee, and Kentucky because they have the potential to be contaminated with salmonella.
On July 31, the company was notified by supplier Onions 52 that it had received red, yellow, and white onions from Thomson International, Inc., which had been implicated in the salmonella-related outbreak. On August 1, bulk onions sourced from Thomson International, Inc. were removed from sale in stores that had been identified as receiving the affected product. Subsequently, it was determined that several in-store made cheese dips may have used red onions from the produce department as an ingredient.
