Listeria caused 25 ready-to-eat food items to be recalled from Kroger stores in three states.

Atlanta-area company GHGB said in its Tuesday recall notice, posted by the FDA, that on Friday it learned “that a single sample of a product tested positive for listeria monocytogenes.”

Listeria kills about 260 of the 1,600 Americans infected each year, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says. Senior citizens, pregnant women and children under 5 are the most vulnerable to listeria’s worse effects. Listeria can cause stillbirths and miscarriage. Listeria symptoms include nausea, diarrhea, high fever, severe headaches, stomachaches, stiffness, confusion and poor balance.

  Family Dollar recalls toothpaste, mouthwash sold in 11 states Family Dollar is asking locations in 11 states to stop selling certain varieties of Colgate toothpaste that had been “stored outside of labeled temperature requirements,” according to a recall notice.News of the recall follows similar notices issued by Family Dollar in July and August, which also concerned products that were improperly stored before being shipped to stores.

The list of products in the recall notice includes salsa, guacamole, vegetable kabobs, “Hamburger Fixins,” pico de gallo, Mexican style bean dip, diced onions and similar foods. They were sold in clear, plastic containers mostly in the produce or deli sections of Kroger stores in South Carolina, Georgia and Alabama.

All the products recalled had expiration dates of Thursday, Saturday, Sunday or Monday. But the concern is they could be in customer’s refrigerators.

If you have any of the recalled products, throw them out or return them to the store for a full refund. If you have questions call GHGB at 888-449-9386, Monday through Friday, 11 a.m. to 7 p.m., Eastern time.
