Stephen Colbert warns us all against Pringles recall. NATION, this is important…

The scary thing is, these 2 flavors are being recalled because of possible salmonella contamination. This is related to a number of cases, where the food born bacteria has been found in hydrolyzed vegetable protein, or HVP, which is a free glutamate much like MSG.

Check out the following list of food additives that are similar to MSG in side effects:

Monopotassium glutamate, Glutamate, Glutamic Acid, Vegetable Protein Extract, Sodium Caseinate, Autolyzed Plant Protein, Hydrolyzed Plant Protein (HPP), Hydrolyzed Vegetable Protein (HVP), Calcium Caseinate, Textured Protein, Yeast Extract, Autolyzed Yeast.

So, check your labels- because the above ingredients are widely added to seemingly healthy products.

P.S. Remember when there was a rumor flying around that Pringles were one molecule away from Elmer’s glue? I can’t find anything to back that up, but I like to believe that it is true…
