Whole Foods Market, a worldwide grocery retailer known for their natural and organic foods, recently announced a voluntarily recall for one of their most popular snacks. The recall information was first released to the public on September 25th, 2018.
According to the FDA, Whole Foods recalled their 365 Everyday Value White Corn Tortilla Chips in response to a labeling error. The product reportedly contains milk, but it was not listed as one of the ingredients on the nutrition label.
“People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to milk run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume this product,” the company said in a statement.
The chips were sold in Whole Foods stores across the United States and in Canada. The affected product has a UPC code of 9948247145 and best-by dates of January 24th or January 25th of 2019.
Fortunately, no allergic reactions have yet to be reported by customers. If this changes, this article will be updated accordingly.
Earlier this year, Whole Foods was involved in two other major food recalls. In April, one of their popular cheese products was believed to be contaminated with listeria and over the summer, the market joined several other retailers in recalling potentially salmonella-contaminated fruit.
If you have this product in your pantry, be aware of the ingredients when serving to those with dairy allergies. Please share this information with friends and family members who may be at risk.
