Pringles Chips the Latest Recall for HVP due to Potential Salmonella
The Procter & Gamble Company is the latest company to voluntarily recall products in response to a recommendation from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Two flavors of Pringles Potato Chips contain the seasoning manufactured by Basic Food Flavors Inc that is potentially contaminated with Salmonella.
The two flavors that contain HVP, or hydrolyzed vegetable protein, are Pringles Restaurant Cravers Cheeseburger in the Super Stack canister (UPC Code 3700026936, Best By dates 02/2011 and 04/2011) and the Pringles Family Faves Taco Night in the Super Stack canister (UPC Code 3700026773, Best By dates 03/2011, 04/2011 and 05/2011). The dates can be found on the bottom of the can.
No other Pringles varieties or flavors are affected by the recall. Consumers who have purchased the recalled products should discard the product and call P&G at 1-877-876-7881 for a replacement coupon or refund.
