Wegmans Bagged Kale and Cheese Soup Could Contain Listeria
If you shop at Wegmans, you may want to check your fridge. The grocery store chain is warning customers about listeria contamination concerns in their bagged kale and cheese soups.
The bagged fresh kale was sold at Wegmans stores between July 30th and August 12th. It may be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes, but there have been no illnesses.
This is not a recall because the best-by date was August 10th and it is no longer in stores. It was also used as an ingredient in a variety of recipes offered on Wegmans hot and cold bars and other prepared foods.
“We want customers who may have consumed this product, or who consumed prepared foods that contained kale, between July 30 and August 12, to know about this on the chance they have experienced or may experience symptoms for listeriosis,” says Jo Natale, vice president of media relations. “Knowing this, they can reach out to their doctor for advice or treatment if necessary. “
