  • Great to know though I havent bought any with so many recalls over the last few years on peanut butter, veggies, meats, eggs etc... it makes you really wonder is any food safe anymore...

  • Thanks for posting this; I am surprised I hadn't heard of this already. I bought lots of Kroger brand veggies. I don't think I have either of the varieties listed above, but I will definitely check the freezer, just in case.

  • I sure have - but I never buy them at Wal Mart and I wouldn't know where a Kroger is. ;o) Thanks for sharing the info though, I DO know someone that buys Wal Mart veggies so I'll pass along the info.
