(News Nation/WOWK) — Kroger is recalling cheese dips sold at stores.
The recall impacts stores located in Virginia, West Virginia, the eastern parts of Tennessee, specifically Johnson City and Kingsport, Kentucky, specifically Ashland and Ohio, specifically Belpre, Marietta and Proctorville.
Kroger is issuing the recall because the cheese dip has the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella. Salmonella can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weak immune systems.
Kroger says no customer illnesses have been confirmed to date.

Kroger was notified again on Aug. 1, bulk onions from Thomson International, Inc. were removed from sale in stores and had been identified as receiving the affected product. Kroger determined several in-store made cheese dips may have used red onions from the produce department as an ingredient.
