NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) — Heads up to all kale lovers, you’re going to want to check the label before making your next kale salad.

Kroger has issued a recall of their 16-ounce bagged kale due to possible listeria monocytogenes contamination.

The products were distributed to Kroger stores in three divisions including Southern Middle Tennessee.

Kroger said listeria can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in children, elderly and those with weakened immune systems.

So far, there have been no reports of illness related to the bagged kale product. Kroger stores have already pulled any potentially contaminated products from shelves.
