Frito-Lay is making it even easier for you to just say no to unhealthy food. The chip-maker is recalling two brands of jalapeño chips: Both the Miss Vickie’s and the Lay’s Kettle Cooked jalapeño-flavored chips are being removed from store shelves over salmonella concerns.
In a press release, the company said that the reason for the recall of the jalapeño-flavored potato chips was due to a potential salmonella contamination in the chips’ seasoning.
“This action is the direct result of a supplier’s recent recall of a seasoning blend which includes jalapeño powder that could contain salmonella,” Frito-Lay said in the statement. “The company has decided to recall these products out of an abundance of caution.”
This Chip Recall Applies To:
- Chips with a “guaranteed fresh” date of July 4 or earlier.
- Multipacks that contains the jalapeño flavor with a guaranteed fresh date of June 20.
Other flavors are unaffected by the recall, including the lower-fat version of Jalapeño Cheddar Lay’s.
“Although no salmonella was found in the seasoning supplied to Frito-Lay, the company has decided to recall these products out of an abundance of caution,” the company said. “No illness related to this matter has been confirmed to date.”
