Another good reason to eat whole foods: Massive FDA processed food product recall

Hydrolyzed vegetable protein (HVP) is a flavor enhancer commonly used in processed foods.
The FDA announced that HVP manufactured by Basic Food Flavors has been recalled, and an estimated 10,000 products are affected. HVP is found in everything from chips and chip dips to sauces, soups and marinades. It is also used in frozen foods and even in some prepared fresh foods such as potato salad and fresh dips.
The recall was issued due to possible salmonella contamination. Salmonella is one of the most common causes of bacterial food-borne illness in the United States. It can cause fever, diarrhea (which may be bloody), nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain.

The following soup and dip mix products are included in the HVP recall. This list may not include the latest updates.
