Expanding HVP Recall for Possible Salmonella

BE AWARE! HVP stands for hydrolyzed vegetable protein, a flavor enhancer used in a wide variety of processed food products. It seems a main supplier out of Las Vegas may be contaminated with Salmonella, thus endangering hundreds of products across the United States. Consumption of products containing Salmonella can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly persons and others with weakened immune systems.

At this time we do not carry any of the affected products, but will stay on top of this issue for your safety. While many of these recalls are voluntary, they still pose a risk and we urge you to choose your meals with caution until this issue is resolved.

From FDA.GOV:

“The U.S. Food and Drug Administration is actively investigating findings of Salmonella Tennessee in hydrolyzed vegetable protein (HVP) manufactured by Basic Food Flavors, Inc., in Las Vegas, NV. HVP is a flavor enhancer used in a wide variety of processed food products, such as soups, sauces, chilis, stews, hot dogs, gravies, seasoned snack foods, dips, and dressings. It is often blended with other spices to make seasonings that are used in or on foods.”

At this time, no illnesses associated with this contamination have been reported to the FDA.
