March 11, 2010 –Ventura Foods, LLC is voluntarily recalling seven of its Dean’s® Dip products, with specific production dates, because a flavor enhancer may be contaminated with Salmonella.
The Dean’s Dip recall impacts only the products listed below with the specific UPC code and “Sell By” dates. This recall does not affect any other Dean’s Dip products or other Ventura Foods Brands.
The flavor enhancer is made with an ingredient, the specific hydrolyzed vegetable protein (HVP), recalled by Basic Food Flavors Inc., Las Vegas, Nevada because it may be contaminated with Salmonella.
This recall only affects Dean’s Dip products which are manufactured by Ventura Foods. It does not affect any Dean Foods products, including dairy products carrying the Dean’s® brand.
Salmonella is an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Healthy persons infected with Salmonella often experience fever, diarrhea (which may be bloody), nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain. In rare circumstances, infection with Salmonella can result in the organism getting into the bloodstream and producing more severe illnesses such as arterial infections (i.e., infected aneurysms), endocarditis and arthritis.
To date, no illnesses have been associated with these products.
Consumers should stop using recalled products immediately unless otherwise instructed.Recalls, Recent News
