If you are a category manager or buyer that procures for resale food products you need to be aware of a potentially massive recall announced by the Food and Drug Administration or FDA.
The Food and Drug Administration has issued a recall for products containing the additive called HVP which stands for hydrolyzed vegetable protein. HVP is an ingredient that is made of soy, corn and wheat and is used in thousands of food products and may be contaminated with Salmonella. Food producers usually buy the ingredient from companies that make the additive. The additive has been found in a variety of products such as soup mixes and salad dressings since the contamination was found but the FDA expects the product list to grow
You can keep track of the products being recalled by going to the following website www.foodsafety.gov which is designed for easy consumer’s searches.
Please pass this on or share it with anyone you know that buys for resale food products and do all that you can to support databases that offer traceability beyond one forward and one back searches.
We look forward to and appreciate your comments.
