Food Recall

Comparative Advantage Theory = Large Scale Food-borne Infection

Economic Theories Turned on Their Heads [Hands Down]

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has advised multiple food companies to recall HUNDREDS of varied products that contain a food additive, found to be infected by salmonella.

The product is a commonly used flavor enhancer named ‘hydrolyzed vegetable protein,’ or HVP, processed by Basic Food Flavors Inc, a Las Vegas-based company.

HVP is used in tens of thousands of processed food products retailed throughout the U.S., and represents about  1.5% of the ingredients in packaged foods.

It takes just a single ingredient processed by a single manufacturer to infect a large proportion of the food you eat.

Even the dinosaurs had better survival odds!

Salmonella is an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Healthy persons infected with Salmonella often experience fever, diarrhea (which may be bloody), nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain. In rare circumstances, infection with Salmonella can result in the organism getting into the bloodstream and producing more severe illnesses such as arterial infections (i.e., infected aneurysms), endocarditis and arthritis.
