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.

Health Risk: Low

WASHINGTON, June 11, 2014 – Fruitland American Meat, a Jackson, Mo. establishment is recalling approximately 4,012 pounds of fresh beef products because the dorsal root ganglia may not have been completely removed, which is not compliant with agency regulations that require their removal in cattle 30 months of age and older, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced today.

Recall Notification Report 033-2014 (Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts)

WASHINGTON, May 29, 2014– Boulder Natural Meats, a Denver, Colo., establishment, is recalling approximately 363 pounds of Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts due to misbranding, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced today. The product was formulated with wheat, which is declared on the product label, so all allergens are properly identified. However, the front label states the product is gluten free. Products with a gluten free claim may not contain wheat.

The following product is subject to recall:

1 to 1.5-lbs. vacuum sealed packages of “Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts brushed with Teriyaki Seasoning”
The product was produced May 13 and 14, 2014, and has a freeze by date of 05.24.14 or 05.25.14. The product bears the establishment number “P18852” inside the USDA mark of inspection. The product was sold to retail establishments in Colorado.

The problem was discovered by a retailer, which notified the company. After an investigation, it was determined that the front label was mislabeled “gluten free,” because an older label was mistakenly used.

FSIS and the company have received no reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of the product. Anyone concerned about a reaction should contact a healthcare provider.
