Lay’s Potato Chips Recalled

Liz King

Lay’s potato chips are probably the most famous chips in the world. Everyone loves their new and exotic flavors, and the original as well. Once you eat one potato chip, it seems like you can’t put the bag down. Recently, the Frito-Lay company was faced with a potential crisis in one of their chip flavors.

There was a risk that there could be a potential presence of salmonella in their Jalapeño Lay’s flavored Kettle Cooked potato chips, and Jalapeno flavored Miss Vickie’s Kettle Cooked potato chips.

Salmonella is a microscopic organism that can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems.

Consumers who have purchased these recalled products are advised not to consume them. Frito-Lay is currently working with the FDA on this recall to ensure the recalled products are removed from store shelves and are no longer distributed.

“This action is the direct result of a supplier’s recent recall of a seasoning blend which includes a Jalapeño powder that could contain Salmonella,” according to the recall notice on the Food and Drug Administration’s website.

No illness related to this matter has been heard of. The chips were distributed nation wide, but no reports have been filed.

No other products or flavors contained in Lay’s or Miss Vickie’s multi packs are being recalled. Also, no flavors of Lay’s Kettle Cooked potato chips or Miss Vickie’s potato chips were impacted or recalled.  The Jalapeño Cheddar Flavored Lay’s Kettle Cooked has 40 percent Less Fat and they were not impacted or recalled.

Hopefully soon we will have our beloved chips back on shelf’s.
