RECALL: Frito-Lay Potato Chips Recalled for Undeclared Allergens
If you’ve purchased Lays snacks, then don’t miss this recall! Frito-Lay voluntarily recalled mislabeled bags of BBQ chips. And, this could lead to allergic reactions. Of course, the FDA has been notified.
What is a Recall?
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Center for Disease Control (CDC) in the United States are the departments responsible for investigating potential problems with food safety. Of course, from their investigations, they may issue warnings to the public. In other words, a Recall by the FDA or CDC means that the product in question is not safe for the specified reason. Additionally, they give guidelines and instructions based on the specific threat at hand. For example, they may warn that consumers should not consume the product. Or, they may suggest that the company responsible is willing to refund the purchase price.
Why is There a Recall?
The recalled bags of Lay’s Barbecue Flavored Potato Chips contain the wrong flavor of potato chip. And, that could expose consumers to undeclared milk.
So, if you have an allergy or severe sensitivity to milk, then you run the risk of a serious or life-threatening allergic reaction.
Which Product(s) are Included in this Recall?
Frito-Lay today issued a voluntary recall of select 1 oz., 1 1/2 oz., 2 5/8 oz., 7 3/4 oz., 12 1/2 oz., 15 1/2 oz. bags of Lay’s Barbecue Flavored Potato Chips. Because, they may contain undeclared milk ingredients. Select Frito-Lay Variety Packs may also include the recalled product.
Where Was the Recalled Product Sold?
Recalled products were sold in Arizona, California, Hawaii, Idaho, Montana, New Mexico, Nevada, Oregon, Utah, Washington and Wyoming. In these locations, they were distributed to retail stores and via foodservice, vending, e-commerce, mail distribution and other channels.
What Should You Do?
