The U.S. Food and Drug Administration announced the recall of 529 pounds of Kroger brand smoked salmon dip because of possible contamination.
House of Thaller Inc. of Knoxville, Tenn., which produced the salmon, initiated the voluntary recall because the product might be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes, an organism that can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections.
The salmon dip was sold at Kroger Co. supermarkets in Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Illinois, Kansas, Kentucky, Michigan, Missouri, Mississippi, North Carolina, Nebraska, Ohio, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia and West Virginia.
The salmon dip was packed in clear plastic 7.5-ounce rectangular containers marked with "Use By 04NOV2007A LN3" and "04NOV2007B LN3" codes.
Also included in the recall were 287 pounds of Cajun Salmon Dip and 945 pounds of Southern Crab Dip, all with the same "use by" dates, and 516 pounds of Sundried Tomato Crab with a "use by" date of "24OCT2007A LN3."
