McCormick expands recall of processed mixes

March 11, 2010|By Liz F. Kay | liz.kay@baltsun.com

Sparks-based McCormick & Co. expanded its recall of four products Thursday due to possible contamination of one ingredient with salmonella, part of a nationwide recall of a growing list of processed food products.

The expanded recall includes additional packages of French onion dip mix, vegetable dip, onion gravy and corn bread stuffing that contain hydrolyzed vegetable protein, a flavor enhancer, manufactured after September 17, 2009.

The list now includes onion gravy with "best by" dates ranging from Oct. 7, 2011 through Feb. 13, 2012; vegetable dip from June 8, 2011 through July 28, 2011; French onion dip mix from Oct. 6, 2011 through Jan. 23, 2012. The corn bread was not stamped with "best by" dates but the additional recall includes packages with the product code 4520AH.

A food manufacturer testing supplies discovered the contamination and notified the Food and Drug Administration. No illness has been attributed to the product, made by Basic Food Flavors Inc. of Nevada.

Consumers can call 1-800-632-5847 to replace these products or to get refunds.

As of Thursday, more than 149 products from a variety of manufacturers had been recalled due to HVP contamination. For a full list of affected products or to sign up for e-mail notices about food recalls, go to foodsafety.gov.
