On 4/3, Tyson recalled Spare Time Uncooked Chicken Tenderloin Fritters and Tyson Uncooked Breaded Chicken Tenderloins that had been shipped for distribution to *restaurants and institutions* because the items contained undeclared soy in a marinade sub-ingredient, specifically concentrated soy protein. They attributed the error to a label change after reformulation.

Personal comment: another example of inaccurate labels and/or glutamate "enhanced" food distributed behind the scenes.

One of my worst MSG reactions ever came from food with a clean label that had the original printed ingredients amended with "salt" added at the end in obviously different script than the rest. I highly suspect they were taking a short cut from saying "monosodium glutamate". These days I would have reported it myself.

Roy, wow. That is remarkable. Maybe the person who made the addition thought "monosodium glutamate" equalled "sodium" equalled "salt"? Then again, there are "salts" with MSG ingredients. There is no real accountability.
