Hydrolyzed Vegetable Protein Recall Taquitos and Quesadillas

Some of you may be tired of hearing about the HPV Hydrolyzed Vegetable Protein Recall, but unfortunately it’s not going away just yet.  When I posted last about the widespread Class 1 recall, there were about 50 foods that were on the recall list.  It is now over 100 different foods and is expected to continue to climb.  (Even Pringles chips are on the list now!)

I’m letting you all know about this one since Jose Ole taquitos were on sale at Publix grocery stores several weeks back (2/10 – 2/16).  Kroger has a list on their website of foods recalled sold in their stores and the Jose Ole taquitos as well as some Health Valley Organic foods are listed there as well. 

Today, Windsor Foods announced that is is recalling approximately 1.7 million pounds of ready-to-eat beef taquito and chicken quesadilla products that may be contaminated with Salmonella. 

WASHINGTON—Windsor Foods, a firm with operations in Lampasas, Texas, and Oakland, Miss., is recalling approximately 1.7 million pounds of ready-to-eat (RTE) beef taquito and chicken quesadilla products that may be contaminated with Salmonella.
