— 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.

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.

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

Wow! That stuff's in practically anything and everything that's not in the dairy, produce or meat departments. Not eating anything with that in it would probably be a guaranteed weight loss program anyway.

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?
