The recall involves its Kroger, Jay C, Owen's, Pay Less, Scott's, Food 4 Less, Dillons, Baker's and Gerbes stores in selected states.

The California supplier, NewStar Fresh Foods, said that recall is being done out of an abundance of caution after a single package yielded a positive test result by the Ohio Department of Agriculture.
