Pringles Recall for Hydrolyzed Vegetable Protein (HVP)

Another Reason Not to Eat Junk: Pringles Recall

As if junk food wasn't bad enough because of the high calorie content and unpronounceable ingredients, here's another reason to avoid it. Procter & Gamble has announced the recall of two flavors of Pringles: Restaurant Cravers Cheeseburger and Family Faves Taco Night. The culprit is the widely used flavor enhancer hydrolyzed vegetable protein (HVP) made by Basic Food Flavors, Inc. Investigators found dirty equipment and poor drainage at the Las Vegas plant and smelly, standing pools of liquid where the HVP was made. What's even worse — the liquid tested positive for salmonella. Um . . . eww.

Pringles isn't the only food to worry about. Hot dogs, chili, stews, gravies, sauces, soups, salad dressings, and other snack foods also contain HVP made from this company. For a full list of products contained in this recall, check out Will you be tossing anything from your kitchen cabinets?

I don't eat Pringles, so I don't have anything to toss out.

Gross. Though to be fair, there have been plenty fruit, veggies, meat and nut recalls too. Maybe the title should be "Another reason not to eat at all:"
