Another reason to make your own food

Salmonella in packaged foods like dips, chips, salad dressings, sauces and more. From the Vancouver Sun:

OTTAWA — Canadian consumers can likely expect an avalanche of food recalls after an ingredient used in thousands of processed foods was found to be contaminated with salmonella, government investigators said Friday.

The popular flavour enhancer hydrolyzed vegetable protein (HVP) is added to a wide range of processed foods, including dips, salad dressings, chips, sauces, hotdogs, soups and frozen dinners. Already, 56 products in the United States and two in Canada — chips and veggie dips — have been recalled this week after salmonella was detected in the flavouring ingredient produced by a Nevada company.

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency on Friday said the recall net will probably widen as it continues to work with the Canadian clients of Basic Food Flavors, Inc. and importers of processed foods containing the ingredient.
