Additive Linked To Salmonella

Have a question? Agree, disagree,
with me? Leave me your opinion.

A flavor additive- hydrolyzed vegetable
protein, HVP- found in 94 products was
recalled in the United States.

A Nevada company, Basic Food Flavors Inc,
manufactured the bad additive, The Food and
Drug Administration reported. It can unfold
into one of the bigger recalls.

The additive is stirred in with spices to
flavor hundreds of products like: frozen foods,
soups, chips, dips, sauces, salad dressings,
processed foods, and hot dogs. It's not always
listed, because it's part of a blend. The risk
to health is higher for "eat-now" foods such as
potato chips, dips, salad dressings. It's less
dangerous to eat cooked processed food containing
the additive.

There are no cases of illnesses in the United
States from recalled products, authorities

Companies usually have a system in place for
such matters. Recalls will continue for awhile,
because the tracking system is slow for this
particular additive.

Due to the nature of the offending additive,
time is needed for the systems of companies,
suppliers, clients, to come together for a
chat, action.

Manufacturers buy the additive from various
sources without a follow-up system being in
place, but steps are being taken to remedy
the situation.

Marcella Glenn is a freelance writer who has written news reports, worked in an office, reviewed movies, published a newsletter and had her novel, "Grave Street House," published. She, too, is a Writing Consultant as well as a Personal Coach.

She has tried to go down some of life's other paths. A few paths were a mail-order business, the publishing of a pen-pal newsletter and selling plastic-ware. Only, she was back writing before realizing what she was doing.

She'd critique titles, paragraphs, news reports, that no one submitted to her. She'd stop herself, eventually. Marcella Glenn seemed to be enjoying the act of writing. This is how she knew writing was more than a hobby.

Let it be a lesson in your life too. Is writing calling your name? Or, acting? Teaching? Are you interested in engineering? Have the courage to go for your dreams. Simply, believe in yourself.
