Frito-Lay is voluntarily recalling its jalapeño-flavored Lay’s Kettle Cooked potato chips and jalapeño-flavored Miss Vickie’s Kettle Cooked potato chips over fears that the seasoning they used could have been contaminated with Salmonella.
Frito-Lay’s supplier recently recalled their seasoning blend, which included jalapeño powder that may contain Salmonella, an organism that can cause fever, nausea and abdominal pain in healthy adults, as well as more serious and potentially fatal infections in those with weakened immune systems.
Even though no Salmonella was found in the seasoning supplied to them, Frito-Lay decided to pull the chips, “out of an abundance of caution.” No illnesses have been reported relating to this recall either.
The recall affects bags of jalapeño-flavored Lay’s Kettle Cooked potato chips and jalapeño-flavored Miss Vickie’s Kettle Cooked potato chips that have a “guaranteed fresh” date of July 4 or prior, plus bags of jalapeño-flavored chips contained in multipacks with a “use by” date of June 20 or prior.
The other flavors of chips in those multipacks are not affected by the recall. The jalapeño cheddar-flavored Lay’s Kettle Cooked 40% Less Fat potato chips are not affected by this recall either.
If you bought either type of chips affected by this recall, visit www.jalapenochiprecall.com for product reimbursement.
