Grocery store chain Kroger is recalling select packages of pet food in Georgia and 18 other states. Officials say the products might contain aflatoxin, which poses a health risk to pets.

Cincinnati, Ohio-based Kroger says it is using a customer recall notification system in an effort to help customers determine if they purchased the affected pet food.

States with Kroger-affiliated stores included in the recall are Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michigan, Mississippi, Missouri, Nebraska, North Carolina, Ohio, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia and West Virginia.
