A news release from McCormick & Co. says that the Georgia Department of Agriculture released an erroneous press statement Wednesday claiming that McCormick was recalling several products manufactured with hydrolyzed vegetable protein due to bacteria contamination.
The Public Affairs Office of the Georgia Department of Agriculture Thursday stated that the original press statement was in error, McCormick said.
McCormick said there is no food safety issue and no recall.
The Georgia Department of Agriculture advised McCormick that, later Thursday it would issue a news release stating that the original statement was in error.
