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.

Class I Recall 050-2015
Health Risk: High

Boa Vida Imports Recalls Pork And Beef Products Imported From An Ineligible Country Without Benefit Of Import Inspection

WASHINGTON, March 20, 2015 – Boa Vida Imports, a New Bedford, Mass., establishment, is recalling approximately 385 pounds of pork and beef products imported from Portugal because this country is not eligible to export meat products to the United States, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced today. These products were also not presented at the U.S. point of entry for inspection. Without the benefit of full inspection, including determining the equivalence of a foreign food regulatory system, a possibility of adverse health consequences exists.

The pork meat and beef tripe stew with beans items were produced on various dates between July and October 2014. The following products are subject to recall:

1-lb. cans of “NOBRE Receitas Caseiras CHISPALHADA” with a use or sell by date of 10/21/2016 on the can.

1-lb. cans of “NOBRE Receitas Caseiras DOBRADA COM FEIJAO BRANCA” with a use or sell by date of 09/23/2016 on the can.

1-lb. cans of “NOBRE Receitas Caseiras FEIJOADA A TRANSMOTANA” with a use or sell by date of 07/10/2016 on the can.

The products subject to recall bear the establishment number “PT RTR 79 CE” inside the Portugal mark of inspection. These products were shipped to retail locations in Southeastern Massachusetts.

The problem was discovered when Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) contacted a FSIS Office of Investigation, Enforcement, and Audit (OIEA) Investigator on the suspicion that these products were imported from a country (Portugal) not currently eligible for import.

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

Van Lang Foods Recalls Pork And Chicken Products Due To Misbranding And Undeclared Allergen

WASHINGTON, March 20, 2015 - Van Lang Foods, a Countryside, Ill. establishment, is recalling approximately 232 pounds of pork potstickers and chicken dim sum due to misbranding and an undeclared allergen, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced today. The products contain egg, a known allergen which was not declared on the product label.

The following products are subject to recall:

12-oz. trays of “Sid Wainer and Son Domaine de Provence Pork Potstickers”

12-oz. trays of “Sid Wainer and Son Domaine de Provence Chicken Dim Sum”

Although the products subject to recall were packaged in boxes that bear the establishment number “P-18403” or “EST 18403” inside the USDA Mark of Inspection, the consumer labels do not have the mark of inspection. The chicken dim sum was produced on November 11, 2014 and the pork potstickers on November 12, 2014. Both products were then shipped to a distributor for retail sales in New Bedford, Massachusetts.

The missing USDA Mark of Inspection was initially discovered by FSIS personnel at a retail location during a routine inspection, with the undeclared allergen discovered later during FSIS investigative activities.

FSIS and the company have received no reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about an injury or illness should contact a healthcare provider.

Yes teafortwo: USDA is already up to 47 recalls and it's only the middle of March. I'm only looking at the food recalls. There are others for Animal/Veterinary, Pharmaceuticals, Cosmetics, Tobacco, and such. A bit too much for one person to work on.

It hits home when the other categories cross over into the food recalls. That's when it gets really serious.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE — March 17, 2015 — NORTHFIELD, Ill. — Kraft Foods Group is voluntarily recalling approximately 242,000 cases of select code dates and manufacturing codes of the Original flavor of Kraft Macaroni & Cheese Dinner – due to the possibility that some boxes may contain small pieces of metal.

Some of these products have also been packed in multi-pack units that have a range of different code dates and manufacturing codes on the external packaging (box or shrink-wrap), depending on the package configuration (see table below).

Recalled product was shipped to customers in the U.S. and several other countries, excluding Canada. The affected dates of this product were sold in only these four configurations:

3-pack box of those 7.25 oz. boxes, Original flavor
4-pack shrink-wrap of those 7.25 oz. boxes, Original flavor
5-pack shrink-wrap of those 7.25 oz. boxes, Original flavor

No other sizes, varieties or pasta shapes and no other packaging configurations are included in this recall. And no products with manufacturing codes other than “C2” below the code date on the individual box are included in this recall.

Kraft has received eight consumer contacts about this product from the impacted line within this range of code dates and no injuries have been reported. We deeply regret this situation and apologize to any consumers we have disappointed.

The recalled product was shipped by Kraft to customers nationwide in the U.S. The product was also distributed to Puerto Rico and some Caribbean and South American countries -- but not to Canada.

FDA Investigates Listeria monocytogenes in Ice Cream Products from Blue Bell Creameries

According to the CDC and the Kansas Department of Health and Environment, five patients who were treated in a single hospital in Kansas were infected with one of four rare strains of Listeria monocytogenes. Three of these strains, which are highly similar, have also been found in products manufactured at the Blue Bell Creameries production facility in Brenham, Texas. Illness onset dates range from January 2014 to January 2015.

FDA was notified that these three strains and four other rare strains of Listeria monocytogenes were found in samples of Blue Bell Creameries single serving Chocolate Chip Country Cookie Sandwich and the Great Divide Bar ice cream products collected by the South Carolina Department of Health & Environmental Control during routine product sampling at a South Carolina distribution center, on February 12, 2015. These products are manufactured at Blue Bell Creameries’ Brenham facility.

The Texas Department of State Health Services, subsequently, collected product samples from the Blue Bell Creameries Brenham facility. These samples yielded Listeria monocytogenes from the same products tested by South Carolina and a third single-serving ice cream product, Scoops, which is also made on the same production line.

According to the Kansas Department of Health and Environment, hospital records available for four patients show that all were served ice cream from Blue Bell Creameries’ prepackaged, single-serving products and milkshakes made from these products. The hospital receives ice cream manufactured by Blue Bell Creameries, although it is not confirmed that the hospital receives ice cream only from the Brenham facility.

All five case patients are adults. Three deaths have been reported.

Blue Bell Creameries reports that it has removed the affected ice cream products from the market (see section below “What Products are Involved?”) by picking it up directly from the retailers and hospital settings it serves. The company has also shut down the production line where the products were made.

The FDA has moved quickly to investigate this issue and learn as much as possible to prevent additional people from becoming ill. We recognize that people will be concerned about these illnesses, and we will continue to provide updates and advice.
