Kroger Announces Recall for Baked Good Contaminated with Metal Fragments

— November 30, 2021

Kroger is recalling certain baked goods that may be contaminated with metal fragments.

As we enter into the Holiday season, many families are hosting gatherings that often involve dessert of some kind. A few desserts that should be avoided for the time being, though, are certain baked goods from Kroger. Earlier this week, Kroger announced a recall for 20 products “that were sold under the Country Oven brand,” according to Food Safety News. Why? According to the recall, the products may contain metal fragments.
