Cheeseburger Pringles not kosher


Pringles has recalled its cheeseburger flavored chips. No, not because that sounds disgusting. Instead, there is concern these chips were contaminated with salmonella.

From the Christian Science Monitor:

If you were about to pop the top on a can of taco- or cheeseburger-flavored Pringles, you might want to hold that thought

The meat-inspired chips are the latest products added to a recall stretching back to Feb. 26. Pringles’s parent company Proctor & Gamble announced the voluntary recall Tuesday.

The chips contain hydrolyzed vegetable protein (HVP), a common “flavor-enhancer,” made by Basic Food Flavors, Inc., that has been found to be contaminated with salmonella.

Products from 26 other brands have already been recalled (See here for complete list of products affected). That list could continue to grow, as the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is still investigating.

That doesn’t sound kosher, even if we set aside the mixing of dairy and meat. A sign from God to keep kosher? If so, look out Doritos.
