US product recall

DISTRIBUTOR Frito-Lay has issued a voluntary recall of 13 1/2-ounce "Party Size" bags of Ruffles Original Potato Chips because they could possibly contain undeclared milk, the US Food and Drug Administration has announced.

The bags were distributed to retail grocery stores in Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska, Oklahoma, and Arkansas. No other Ruffles products, sizes, or flavors are included in the recall, including variety packs, the notice says. They have a UP code of 0 28400 03400 5 and a "Guaranteed Fresh" date of 23 MAR 2021. 

The recall was sparked by the discovery of bags with a Ruffles Original label but a different flavor that contains milk inside. In total, 50 bags are being recalled. No injuries or allergic reactions have been reported.

"Consumers with the product noted above can return the product to a retailer for a refund or contact Frito-Lay Consumer Relations at 1-800-352-4477."
