MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Kroger Delta Division, which operates stores in the Mid-South, is recalling several cheese dips sold in the supermarket’s deli departments because they have the potential to be contaminated with salmonella.
The company was notified July 31 by supplier Onions 52 that it had received red, yellow, and white onions from Thomson International, Inc., which had been implicated in a salmonella-related outbreak.
The onions were removed from store shelves the next day, but it was later found that they were used in the cheese dips.
No customer illnesses have been confirmed to date, but the company said the dips are being recalled out of “an abundance of caution.”
The dips, which are in plastic containers, were sold between May 15 and Aug, 6. The affected products are:
