Two Flavors Of Pringles Chips Recalled

pringles

The Procter & Gamble Company, in response to a recommendation from the Food & Drug Administration (FDA) to the food industry, announced today that it is voluntarily recalling Pringles Restaurant Cravers Cheeseburger potato crisps and Pringles Family Faves Taco Night potato crisps as part of an industry ingredient recall to protect consumers from potential Salmonella exposure. There have been no reports of Salmonella-related illness in relation to these products.

P&G was notified by one of its suppliers that a seasoning used in these two products contains hydrolyzed vegetable protein (HVP) manufactured by Basic Food Flavors, Inc., who has voluntarily recalled several lots of this ingredient because of potential salmonella exposure. As a result, the FDA has recommended that food manufacturers recall certain types of products containing HVP manufactured by Basic Food Flavors, and P&G is complying with this guidance.

Only products with the following "best by" dates are being recalled. The "best by" date for each product can be found on the bottom of the can.

No other Pringles varieties or flavors are affected by this recall. These two products represent one half of one percent of Pringles' US volume. None of the affected products have been shipped to retailers outside of the United States.

According to a Pringles news release: "The safety of our products is P&G's top priority, and we follow rigorous food safety and ingredient testing standards. We are withdrawing these products out of an abundance of caution for consumer safety and in response to FDA's recommendation to the food industry."

Consumers who have purchased the recalled products should discard the product and call P&G for a replacement coupon or refund at 1-877-876-7881 (Hours of operation: Monday - Friday, 9AM - 6PM US ET).

 

A separate recall was also requested today from Nature's Variety, which includes all raw frozen chicken diets with any "best if used by" date on or before 2/5/11. Click here to learn more.
