Food Product Recall

Last week, the FDA recalled thousand of products that contained hydrolyzed vegetable protein which was thouht to contain salmonella. The vegetable protein was sold to manufacturers all over the U.S. from basic Food Flavors. The Las Vegas plant is now being inspected by the FDA. They have concluded so far that not many people will be affected by the salmonella because most of the food containing the protein is cooked, which kills the salmonella.
I think that the FDA should inspect Basic Food Flavors more to make sure that nothing else was contaminated. If people do start getting sick from salonella the FDA will have a lot to deal with. They also should be inspecting food more carefully before it is even sold to the public.
