CINCINNATI -- A recall for potential listeria contamination affects three products sold at Tri-State Kroger stores.

The grocer is recalling Kroger Salad Toppers Sunflower Kernels, Kroger Sunflower Kernels and Kroger Cranberry Delight Trail Mix, according to the Food and Drug Administration.

A Kroger supplier indicated sunflower kernels may be contaminated with listeria monocytogenes, the company said. The bacteria can cause an infection called listerosis, which usually brings fever and muscle aches, along with potential diarrhea or other gastrointestinal problems. Headache, a stiff neck, confusion, loss of balance and convulsions also can be symptoms.

No one has reported getting sick from the products Kroger is recalling, but no one should eat any of the items.

Specifically, Kroger is recalling:

  • Kroger Salad Toppers Sunflower Kernels: UPC 0001111002127; Sell by DEC0316 and DEC0416; 3.5-oz. size.
  • Kroger Sunflower Kernels: UPC 0001111061877; Sell by DEC1116, DEC1316 and DEC1416; 6-oz. size.
  • Kroger Cranberry Delight Trail Mix: UPC 0001111089869; Sell by MAR0917, MAR1017, MAR1117 and APR1117; 14-oz. size.

Customers who have the recalled items can return them to Kroger for a full refund or replacement.
