Lay’s BBQ Chips Sold in Montana Are Being Recalled
If you bought any Lay's barbecue chips in Montana recently, pay attention to this - the company just issued a voluntary recall of the product from stores. Apparently, certain bags of the barbecue chips were actually filled with a different flavor of chip. You might not think it's that big of a deal, but it does potentially expose customers to milk ingredients that they weren't expecting, which could cause a great - possibly life-threatening - risk for lactose intolerant people.
The recall is impacting eleven states in total, with Montana being one of them - it also includes Arizona, California, Hawaii, Idaho, New Mexico, Nevada, Oregon, Utah, Washington, and Wyoming. And the recall is ONLY on bags of the barbecue flavor of Lay's chips - none of their other products are being recalled at the moment.
(I don't have a milk allergy, but imagine the disappointment on someone's face when they bite into a chip they expect to be barbecue and instead, it's like, vinegar. It'd be a bummer!)
So which barbecue bags should you look out for? 1 oz., 1 1/2 oz., 2 5/8 oz., 7 3/4 oz., 12 1/2 oz. and 15 1/2 oz size bags are all part of the recall, and they also say that the chips might be included in Frito-Lay Variety Packs, so be aware of that if this is a concern.
If you do have one of the recalled bags, you can return it to the store you bought it from for a refund, or you can directly contact Frito-Lay with their online customer service chat.
