Putting one kind of potato chip in the bags meant for another kind of potato chip might be a chuckle worthy snafu unless a food allergy gets involved. That’s why Frito-Lay recalled Lay’s Lightly Salted Barbecue potato chips distributed in 24 states.
Or, rather, recalled bags that say “Lay’s Lightly Salted Barbecue potato chips.” That flavor doesn’t have milk. The flavor of potato chips that got mistakenly put in the recalled bags, according to theFrito Lay written FDA recall notice, has milk. No problem other than taste disappointment to those who don’t have a milk allergy. Major problem to those who do.
“People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to milk run the risk of a serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume the product contained inside the recalled potato chips bags,” the recall notice says.
The recalled bags have a “guaranteed fresh” date of Aug. 27, 2019 and, beneath that date, a manufacturing code that will have “2” and “9” as the second and third digits. The bags went to about 24 states from which they have now been recalled due to this huge error.
