When a common food ingredient like flour or black pepper might be contaminated with a pathogen that can make people sick, it gives us extra insight into how complex and intertwined the modern food production system is. For example, thanks to the Great Powdered Milk Recall of 2016, we’re learning how many different kinds of products use the same product from the same potentially salmonella-contaminated source.

Here are some new products to add to the list, in addition to the pancake mixes and mac and cheese that we already knew about:

Old Dutch, Roundy’s, Lund’s, Byerly’s, and Urge Potato and Tortilla Chips
