P&G recalls 2 Pringles flavors


CINCINNATI (AP) -- Procter & Gamble is recalling two flavors of its Pringles chips because they may be tainted with Salmonella.

The Cincinnati-based company is offering replacement coupons or refunds for the Cheeseburger and "Taco Night" versions of the snack. The company has had no reports of illness.

P&G is the latest company to recall products with flavor-enhancing hydrolyzed (HY'-droh-lyzd) vegetable protein made by Las Vegas-based Basic Food Flavors.

Salmonella bacteria can cause serious infections in young children and others with weakened immune systems. Federal authorities say Salmonella was found on Basic Food's processing equipment.
