Frito-Lay, one of the largest snack producers in the world, recently issued a recall for one of their popular chip products. According to the FDA, the voluntary recall is potentially “serious” and “life-threatening” for select individuals.

Some of Stacy’s Simply Naked Pita Chips were mistakenly filled with another flavored pita chip that contains milk ingredients. The chips were distributed to various retail locations nationwide.

“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 pita chips bags,” the FDA said.

The recalled chips have a “Use By” date of 23 APR 2019 and manufacturing code of “65M127902.” The UPC code is “028400564632.”

One consumer who had an allergic reaction has been reported. It is unclear if that individual suffered any serious or life-threatening circumstances.

Please contact Frito-Lay Consumer Relations at 1-800-352-4477 if you have any questions about this recall. The company has agreed to provide customers with a refund.

This isn’t the first time Frito-Lay had to recall one of their products over an allergy-related mistake. In November of last year, their popcorn was accidentally filled with cheese-flavored tortilla chips putting those with dairy allergies in harm's way.

Please share this recall information with friends and family who may be at risk. In other trending news, Dog the Bounty Hunter’s wife is in need of prayer as she continues to battle cancer.
