Jalapenos removed from stores by Kroger

CINCINNATI Kroger Co. has removed jalapeno peppers from its stores as a precaution.

Spokesman Meghan Glynn said yesterday the company made the decision after the U.S. Food and Drug Administration reported Monday that a McAllen, Texas, distributor was recalling jalapenos because they had the potential to be contaminated with salmonella.

She said Kroger had received no complaints from customers suspecting jalapenos made them ill.
