April 23 (UPI) -- Frito-Lay voluntarily recalled some jalapeno-flavored potato chips because of the potential presence of Salmonella in the seasoning, the Food & Drug Administration announced.
Affected by the recalls are Jalapeno Flavored Lay's Kettle Cooked and Jalapeno Flavored Miss Vickie's Kettle Cooked potato chips, the FDA said Friday.
A supplier recently recalled a seasoning blend that includes jalapeño powder, which could contain Salmonella.
Frito-Lay said no Salmonella was found in seasoning supplied but the company opted to recall the products as a precaution.
Also, multi-pack products with a "use by" date of June 20 are affected by the recall, including: "12 count Lay's Kettle Cooked Multi-pack Sack," "20 count Frito-Lay Bold Mix Sack," "30 count Miss Vickie's Multi-pack Tray," "30 count Lay's Kettle Cooked Multi-pack Tray," and "32 count Miss Vickie's Multi-pack Box." Salmonella can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems, according to the FDA.
