The recall is the result of notification by one of our vendors that a flavor used in the soup mix contained an HVP (hydrolyzed vegetable protein) produced by Basic Food Flavors of Nevada which had the potential to contain salmonella. Although the flavor used in the soup was tested by an independent lab, and found to be negative for the bacteria, we are proceeding with this notice for precautionary food safety reasons.
Although the soup and sauce mixes are not directly available to the public, if you have obtained a box or package of Instant Beef Soup mix or box of Instant Beef Stroganoff Sauce mix as described above, return it to the place you obtained it.
