Frito-Lay, owned by PepsiCo (NASDAQ: PEP) is recalling its ‘Lay’s Lightly Salted Barbecue Flavored Potato Chips’ because some of the bags may have accidentally been exposed to dairy with chip flavoring that was meant for a different flavor of chips.
Frito-Lay said in a statement to the FDA, “Consumers with a severe sensitivity to milk risk a potentially fatal allergic reaction if they eat the chips.”
The flavoring was mistakenly inserted into some of the BBQ chips variety. The BBQ chip variety normally contains zero dairy product.
To identify whether or not you have contaminated BBQ Chips, check your bags for the following information: 7.75-ounce bags with a “Guaranteed Fresh” date of Aug. 27, 2019, and a manufacturing code that includes the numbers 2 and 9.
The bags were sold in 24 states including: 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 affected by this specific recall.
