Kroger removes jalapenos amid salmonella concerns

CINCINNATI The nation's largest traditional grocery chain has removed all jalapeno peppers from its stores.

Kroger spokeswoman Meghan Glynn says it's being done as a precaution. She notes that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration reported Monday that a Texas distributor was recalling the peppers because they could be contaminated with salmonella.

Glynn says Cincinnati-based Kroger removed jalapenos the next day, even though none of its supply was from the distributor. She says Kroger has received no complaints from customers suspecting jalapenos made them sick.

The government is warning against eating jalapenos while it continues to investigate a national salmonella outbreak initially linked to tomatoes.
