Frito-Lay Recalls Jalapeno Chips Over Potential Salmonella

Frito-Lay is recalling some jalapeno-flavored chips due to potential salmonella in the seasoning, the company said. 

A supplier recalled the seasoning blend, Frito-Lay said. No salmonella was found in the seasoning supplied to Frito-Lay, but the company recalled the chips on Friday "out of an abundance of caution," according to a press release. 

No illnesses have been confirmed, Frito-Lay said. 

Salmonella can cause diarrhea, fever and abdominal cramps. Most people recover without treatment, though in some cases, diarrhea can be so severe a patient needs to be hospitalized. The elderly, infants and those with impaired immune systems are more likely to have a severe reaction.

The chips were distributed in stores, vending machines and other channels across the United States, the company said. 

The following products are recalled:

All sizes of the following two products that have a “guaranteed fresh” date of JUL 4 or prior printed on the front upper panel of the package:
