March 9, 2010: HVP in Mushroom Soup

As a precautionary measure, Nutritional Resources, Inc announced, it is voluntarily recalling one production code of Healthwise Cream of Mushroom Soup because an ingredient used in the product has the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella. Salmonella is a common food borne pathogen that can cause severe illnesses, including fever, abdominal cramps and diarrhea. While most individuals recover in three to five days without medical intervention, the infection can be life-threatening to young children, the elderly and those with compromised immune systems. Consumers with any of these symptoms should call their physician. For more information on Salmonella, please visit the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Website at http://www.cdc.gov1.

The product subject to this recall was distributed nationwide in foil lined pouches identified as Mushroom Soup marked with the Lot number 22267 on the front of the pouch. The product is sold in physician’s offices and on the internet.

The mushroom soup product was made using Hydrolyzed Vegetable Protein (HVP), recalled by Basic Food Flavors Inc., Las Vegas, Nevada because it may be contaminated with Salmonella.For more information on the basics on Salmonella (such as sources, symptoms, duration of illness):
