It’s time to check your pantry again. The world’s most popular snack maker, Frito-Lay, has issued a recall for two of their top-selling products.
According to the U.S. Food & Drug Administration, a potential presence of salmonella is feared for Frito-Lay’s Jalapeño Flavored Lay’s Kettle Cooked Potato Chips and Jalapeño Flavored Miss Vickie’s Kettle Cooked Potato Chips.
They believe salmonella may be present in the jalapeño flavoring itself.
The FDA notes that salmonella “is an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Healthy persons infected with Salmonella often experience fever, diarrhea (which may be bloody), nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain.”
