FDA Potato Chip Recall
Frito-Lay has issued a voluntary recall on Potato chips in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia. The recall was issued earlier this month, but consumers may still have these chips on hand as the "Guaranteed Fresh" date is "JUN 2021". With Memorial Day weekend coming up, the company wants to make sure you know what the recall entails.
Frito-Lay issued this company statement concerning the chip recall
Frito-Lay today issued a voluntary recall of select 16 1/8 oz. bags of Ruffles All Dressed Potato Chips because they may contain undeclared milk ingredients. People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to milk run the risk of a serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume the product contained inside the recalled bags.
The products covered by this recall may have been regionally distributed to Sam's Club warehouses in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia. Frito-Lay did not distribute these recalled products to any other retailer.
No other Ruffles products, sizes or flavors are recalled, including bags in Variety Packs.
The bags can be identified by UPC code 28400 56520 located on the back of the bags. The "Guaranteed Fresh" date is June 2021. The manufacturing codes are 373205510, 473305610 and 473105610.
At the time this story was published, Frito-Lay had no allergic reactions reported. Frito-Lay reported the voluntary recall to the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA).
Frito-Lay says certain bags of Ruffles All Dressed Potato Chips were accidentally filled with another flavor of potato chips that contained the undeclared milk ingredients.
The company would like all consumers with 16 1/8 oz. bags of Ruffles All Dressed Potato Chips to contact Frito-Lay Consumer Relations at 1-800-352-4477 (9 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. CST, Monday - Friday).
