Hydrolyzed Vegetable Protein (HVP), a flavor enhancer, made by one particular company is currently and albeit silently being recalled. The FDA has a pdf file indicated the products that uses HVP from this one company.

There is a potential, and I stress POTENTIAL, recall of more food items. Here in Hawaii a particular Red Potato Salad sold at Safeway's and Tim's Cascade Maui Onion Potato Chips were recalled.

WhiteWave Foods Voluntarily Recalls Horizon Cheddar Sandwich Crackers Due to Undeclared Peanuts Company says some Horizon Cheddar Sandwich Cracker boxes may contain Peanut Butter Sandwich Crackers

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE — February 20, 2015 — Broomfield, CO. WhiteWave Foods is voluntarily recalling 7.5 oz packages of Horizon Cheddar Sandwich Crackers because they may contain undeclared peanuts. People who have an allergy or sensitivity to peanuts run the risk of serious or life- threatening allergic reaction if they consume this product. No illnesses have been reported to date.

We believe fewer than 62,160 boxes of product have been shipped to retailers and wholesalers in the states of Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, New Hampshire, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Virginia, Washington and Wisconsin.

The recall is taking place due to an inadvertent packaging error. The outer package is labeled as a cheddar sandwich cracker and the inner package contains the peanut butter sandwich crackers.

WhiteWave’s sales team is working with distributors to actively recover any impacted product remaining on store shelves, and the Company has implemented measures to prevent this from happening in the future.

HOW TO IDENTIFY THE RECALLED PRODUCT

Consumers should check the top of the individual box and look for a “best before” date of 17 May 2015, and check the bottom of the box for a Universal Product Code (UPC) of 42365 00464. This is the only product involved in the recall.

Wyked Labs Issues Voluntary Nationwide Recall of Eight Dietary Supplement Products Due to Presence of Prohormone Ingredients

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE — December 12, 2014 — Winter Park, FL — Wyked Labs of Winter Park, Florida is voluntarily conducting a nationwide recall of all lot codes of the following products (collectively, the "Recalled Products") to the user/consumer level:

Wyked Labs Ml-Alpha
Wyked Labs M14-Ment
Wyked Labs Halo-70
Wyked Labs 7-Ment Alpha
Wyked Labs Estrastain
Wyked Labs Swoll-250
Formexx Black (an Anabolic Science Labs product)
Slim X Lean (an Anabolic Science Labs product)

This recall is being conducted due to the presence of ingredients that the Food and Drug Administration ("FDA") has stated do not meet the requirements of the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act of 1994. Specifically, the Recalled Products are prohormone products or are otherwise adulterated. FDA has opined that prohormones are synthetic steroids that bear a similarity to anabolic steroids. It is FDA's position that the ingredients in the products are not properly dietary ingredients that may be present in dietary supplements. Wyked Labs' decision to implement this recall should not be construed as an admission that its sale of these products was in violation of the law. Wyked Labs is undertaking this voluntary recall solely out of an abundance of caution and in deference to FDA's stated concerns.

Use or consumption of products containing methylated anabolic steroids may cause acute liver injury, which is known to be a possible harmful effect of using steroid­containing products. In addition, abuse of anabolic steroids may cause other serious long-term adverse health consequences in men, women, and children. These include shrinkage of the testes and male infertility, masculinization of women, breast enlargement in males, short stature in children, a higher predilection to misuse other drugs and alcohol, adverse effects on blood lipid levels, and increased risk of heart attack, stroke, and death. To date, Wyked Labs has not received reports of these or any other adverse effects related to this recall.
