Check Your Chips, Frito-Lay Recalling Bags
Check your chips. Frito-Lay is recalling potato chips for potential Salmonella.
Select Jalapeño Flavored Lay’s Kettle Cooked potato chips and Jalapeño Flavored Miss Vickie’s Kettle Cooked potato chips are being voluntarily recalled due to the potential presence of Salmonella in the seasoning, according to the FDA.
The recall comes after a supplier’s recent recall of a seasoning blend which includes jalapeño powder that could contain Salmonella. Although no Salmonella was found in the seasoning supplied to Frito-Lay, the company decided to recall these products out of an abundance of caution.
There have been no illnesses caused by the potato chips that can be found in retail stores and vending machines.
