Shearer’s Foods, LLC Issues Allergy Alert On Undeclared Soy And Milk In No Salt Added Kettle Cooked Potato Chips

September 9, 2016 - From the FDA:

Shearer’s Foods, LLC of Massillon, OH is recalling Meijer brand 8.5 ounce packages of No Salt Added Kettle Cooked Potato Chips because they may contain undeclared soy and milk.
The recalled No Salt Added Kettle Cooked Potato Chips were distributed to Meijer stores throughout the Midwest from August 10, 2016 until September 8, 2016.
The product comes in an 8.5 ounce bag marked the UPC # 719283595577 and with an expiration date on the package of OCT 31 2016. A total of 280 cases were affected. All 280 cases of the recalled No Salt Added Kettle Cooked Potato Chips were distributed to Meijer stores.
The recall was initiated after a consumer discovered that there were Salt & Pepper Potato Chips (which contain soy and milk) in a package labeled as No Salt Added Potato Chips, which did not reveal the presence of these allergens. Subsequent investigation revealed we inadvertently added a small quantity of the Salt and Pepper potato chips into the No Salt Added packages. Customers who purchased the recalled product from Meijer’s may dispose of it or return the product to its place of purchase for a full refund. Consumers with questions may contact Shearer’s Consumer Affairs Department toll free at 1-800-428-6843 Monday through Friday, between 9:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. Eastern time.
