Kroger recalls Country Oven Baked Goods due to possible presence of metal

0

The Kroger Co. has recalled about 20 of its baked goods because the desserts may contain too much iron in the ingredients – meaning, not the mineral the body needs, but rather possible metal fragments found in the starch that was used to make the treats.

Food Safety News was first to report Kroger’s recall on Nov. 12. The contaminated products were sold under the chain’s Country Oven brand of baked goods in 29 states.

According to Food Safety News, the recalled products were distributed in South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, Illinois, Indiana, Missouri, Ohio, Kentucky, West Virginia, Tennessee, Mississippi, Arkansas, Nebraska, Kansas, California, Oregon, Arkansas, Washington, Idaho, Colorado, Louisiana, Montana, New Mexico, Nevada, Texas, Wisconsin, Wyoming, Virginia and Utah.
