If you have sensitivity or an allergy to milk or milk products, here is a recall worth watching. Frito-Lay is recalling its Lay’s Lightly Salted Barbecue Flavored Potato Chips because they may contain an undeclared milk allergen, according to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Consumers who have milk and dairy allergies could risk a fatal reaction to the product, said Frito-Lay said in a statement to the FDA.
The company states further that the flavoring of another chip was inserted into some bags of the lightly salted barbecue variety. The latter isn’t made with milk or milk products.
The recalled chips are sold in 7.75-ounce bags with a “Guaranteed Fresh” date of Aug. 27, 2019. The manufacturing code includes numbers 2 and 9.
They were distributed to stores in 24 states: Arkansas, Arizona, California, Colorado, Idaho, Iowa, Kansas, Louisiana, Minnesota, Missouri, Mississippi, Montana, North Dakota, Nebraska, New Mexico, Nevada, Oklahoma, Oregon, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Washington and Wyoming.
No other Lay’s products were involved in the recall.
Frito-Lay’s last recall occurred two years ago, in 2017, when two jalapeno-flavored chip flavors were believed to be contaminated with salmonella.
