Even more Salmonella issues

Once again (this now happens every couple of months) the FDA is forcing a recall of food products (notice that they are called food products, not food) tainted with salmonella. This time it is hydrolyzed vegetable protein manufactured by Basic Food Flavors (that’s some flavoring they are adding…)

The ‘food product’ was added mostly added to beef tacquito and chicken quesadillas from Windsor Foods . But since this product literally goes into thousands of foods, more products are expected to be recalled. Already Pringles has started to recall Pringles Restaurant Cravers Cheeseburger potato crisps and Pringles Family Faves Taco Night potato crisps. In fact so far 56 products have been recalled and more are expected.

Fortunately, so far nobody has apparently gotten sick from this infection, but the continuing spate of recalls only highlights that even more serious problems are likely to occur in the future than have happened in the past.
