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.
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, you can visit jalapenochiprecall.com for product reimbursement.
