One grocery store chain is using receipts to help customers avoid deadly food born illnesses.

The Kroger grocery store chain is notifying customers on receipts of products they've purchased before that have been recalled for health and other reasons.

Customers are tracked through store loyalty cards and were most recently alerted about the nationwide peanut butter recall linked to salmonella contamination.

The center for science in the public interest is calling for all grocery stores with loyalty cards to do this.

So far, Kroger is not alone.

Giant eagle and Costco wholesale are also using their cards to alert customers of recalled products.
