The Kroger Company announced the recall of its Simple Truth Dry Roasted Macadamia Nuts because they may have been contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes.
The macadamia nuts were sold in six states: Ohio, Kentucky, Kansas, Nebraska, Missouri and Indiana. Kroger, Bakers, Gerbes and Dillons stores carry the Simple Truth line.
The product comes in a 12 ounce, clear plastic package marked with an expiration date of May 02, 2018 stamped on the side.
Kroger said it has removed the macadamia nuts from its shelves. If you bought one of these packages, throw them away or take them back to the store for a refund or a replacement.
Ava's brand Organic Cashews Roasted & Salted were sold in New Jersey, New York, Connecticut and Pennsylvania. This recall was initiated because Kroger was notified of this issue by a customer who consumed this product.
No other Hampton Farms products were affected by this recall.
There have been no reports of any illnesses associated with this recall. Although healthy individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea, Listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women. Kroger and its subsidiaries operate an expanding ClickList offering - a personalized, order online, pick up at the store service - in addition to our 2,255 pharmacies, 784 convenience stores, 319 fine jewelry stores, 220 retail health clinics, 1,445 supermarket fuel centers and 38 food production plants in the United States. Pregnant women who are infected might miscarry.
