Procter & Gamble Recalls Pringles Chips

(Pringles article updated with listing of publicly traded companies that have issued recalls of food tainted by Basic Food Flavors ingredients.)

CINCINNATI ( TheStreet) -- Procter & Gamble (PG - Get Report) has recalled two types of Pringles chips over Salmonella concerns.

The Cheeseburger and "Taco Night" versions of the snack are being recalled, which only comprise 0.5% of Pringles volume in the U.S. The company is offering replacement coupons or refunds.

P&G is the latest company to recall products with hydrolyzed vegetable protein made by Basic Food Flavors -- but it's hardly the only one. The manufacturer of the flavor enhancer issued a recall last week when Salmonella was found in its equipment and was transferred to its product.

McCormick (MKC - Get Report) pulled packages of French onion dip mix, vegetable dip mix, onion gravy mix and corn stuffing mix, all of which contained hydrolyzed vegetable protein manufactured by Basic Food Flavors.

Meanwhile, both CVS Caremark (CVS - Get Report) and Safeway (SWY) recalled certain pretzels from the National Pretzel company and Kroger (KR - Get Report) removed Dean's brand dips from its shelves.
