The Food and Drug Administration issued an urgent recall on a select number of vegetables that were sold in Kroger stores in both Missouri and Illinois. The vegetables originated from Baker Farms, but are sold under the Kroger brand. It's collard greens that have a label that looks like this.

The FDA mentioned why listeria contamination is so dangerous:

Listeria monocytogenes is an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems.

No one has been reported any illnesses connected with these Kroger collard greens as of this writing and hopefully this voluntary recall will keep it that way.
