Baker Farms is recalling certain packages of kale that might be contaminated with listeria.
If you’re a fan of kale, this recall is for you. Earlier this week, Baker Farms issued a recall for three kale products over concerns they might be contaminated with listeria. According to the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA), the following products are included in the recall:
|Baker Farms Kale||1 lb||8 13098 02001 6||107020-21832||09-18-2021|
|Kroger Kale||1 lb||0 11110 18170 1||107020-21832||09-18-2021|
|SEG Grocers Kale||1 lb||0 38259 11482 7||107020-21832||09-18-2021|
Fortunately, there have been no illnesses linked to the recall. Listeria monocytogenes can cause serious illnesses, though. Young children, the elderly, pregnant women, and anyone with a weakened immune system are most vulnerable to infection. Symptoms may include the following: high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain, and diarrhea.
For now, consumers who have the product in their homes should either throw it away or return it for a full refund. If you have additional questions or concerns about the recall, contact Mr. Richard G. Baker at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 229-769-3113.
