Multiple Varieties of Potato Chips Recalled Over Salmonella Risk

Frito-Lay has recalled multiple varieties of Lay’s and Miss Vickie’s chips nationwide because the seasoning used on them could contain Salmonella.

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

“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.”

As of Friday, there were no confirmed illnesses related to this case.

Anyone who has eaten any of the recalled chips and snacks and developed symptoms of Salmonella infection should seek medical attention and tell their doctors about the possible exposure.
