Processed food ingredient recalled

March 5, 2010


— A flavoring ingredient used in hundreds of processed foods contains salmonella and is being recalled.

The Food and Drug Administration says a flavor-enhancing ingredient called hydrolyzed vegetable protein manufactured by a Las Vegas company is a common ingredient in many processed foods — including soups, sauces, chilies, stews, hot dogs, gravies, seasoned snack foods, dips and dressings.

All products made with the ingredient since Sept. 17 are being recalled. The FDA said no illnesses or deaths have been reported.

The FDA said Thursday it collected and analyzed samples at the Las Vegas facility and confirmed the presence of a strain of salmonella in the company’s processing equipment.

Journal-World, what good is posting this news if you don't identify the brand-name products being recalled? Why did you leave it for a commenter to post a link?

I got a call from Dillons this week about some Kroeger Onion Soup & Dip mix that was recalled. Wonder if this is why.

Oh....what scared me more than the recall was the fact that Dillons was able to identify that I had bought the mix from my using their "Plus" card.
