King Soopers is recalling two onion soup and dip mixes because of possible salmonella contamination.
The grocer said an ingredient in its Kroger Onion Soup & Dip Mix and Kroger Beefy Onion Soup & Dip Mix may have been contaminated with the bacteria.
The mixes were sold in a number of states and are being recalled from its Kroger, Dillons, Fry's, King Soopers, City Market, Smith's, Food 4 Less, Jay C, Scott's, Owen's, Baker's, Gerbes, Hilander and Pay Less stores.
No illnesses have been reported in connection with the products. But eating food contaminated with salmonella can cause salmonellosis, a potentially life-threatening bacterial foodborne illness.
Kroger said customers who purchased the products should not eat them and return them to the store for a refund or replacement. For more information, contact Kroger at 1-800-632-6900 or go to the company's Web site.
