Creative Contract Packaging Corporation Recalls HERB-OX® Bouillon Products Because of Possible Health Risk

 

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - March 4, 2010 - Aurora, IL - This action is being taken after Basic Food Flavors, Inc. ("Basic") issued a recall for all Hydrolyzed Vegetable Protein ("HVP") dry powder manufactured by Basic Food Flavors on or after September 17, 2009, due to a positive test result for Salmonella in a production lot. Our records indicate that some of the HVP being recalled by Basic Food Flavors was used as an ingredient in HERB-OX® items.

As a result, Creative Contract Packaging Corporation of Aurora, Illinois, is recalling specific code dates of HERB-OX® beef, vegetable, and chicken granular bouillon products because they have the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella. Salmonella is an organism that can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people and others with weakened immune systems. Healthy individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, vomiting, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea. Long-term complications can include severe arthritis.

The UPC number and code date can be found on the package. If you need help finding this information, please call our Consumer Response department at 1-877-446-7635. Our Consumer Response representatives are available from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. CT Monday through Friday. Consumers who have purchased these products should not consume them. Instead, we are asking that consumers return these products to their grocer for a full refund.

The following specific code dates of the items listed below are being recalled:
