Procter & Gamble issues recall order on two Pringles flavors
Some people really like Pringles, I know. But they’re kind of nasty. Reformed material that is potato chip-like, and less than 50% potato content. I mean, c’mon, let’s be serious. Gross.
So when I hear there’s some salmonella in them, I’m not surprised. You know what they say: Once you pop, you can’t stop (puking).
So we have a recall. And when they include flavors like the following, well, let’s just say you’re asking for trouble.
The Procter & Gamble Company (NYSE: PG), in response to a recommendation from the Food & Drug Administration (FDA) to the food industry, announced today that it is voluntarily recalling Pringles Restaurant Cravers Cheeseburger potato crisps and Pringles Family Faves Taco Night potato crisps as part of an industry ingredient recall to protect consumers from potential Salmonella exposure. There have been no reports of Salmonella-related illness in relation to these products.
Cheeseburger flavored chips? Hope those burgers were well done before they were magically transformed into potato crisp seasoning. And Taco Night….why don’t you just go and get a taco?
Glad I don’t eat Pringles. Get me some freshly cooked kettle chips any day of the week. Then again, I’d rather have fries. We had a debate here on True/Slant a long while back (see Mike Hess’s blog post on the best flavor of potato chips) in which I argued that chips are what you eat when you can’t get fries.
I was mocked for it.
Now I am vindicated.
