Dieffenbach’s Potato Chips, Inc. issued a voluntary recall for their Sour Cream & Onion Kettle Chips. This decision was made after being informed by a seasoning supplier, that an ingredient in the seasoning may contain traces of Salmonella. Although tests have shown no existence of Salmonella in the seasoning that was supplied to Dieffenbach’s, out of abundance of caution we are voluntarily issuing the recall of these products in conjunction with FDA guidance.
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has been made aware of this recall. No other Dieffenbach’s Potato Chip products were affected.
To date, there have been no reported illnesses associated with this product. Food contaminated with Salmonella may not look or smell spoiled but can still make you sick. Young children, pregnant women, the elderly and people with weakened immune systems may contract serious and sometimes deadly infections. Healthy people may experience short-term symptoms such as fever, headache, vomiting, nausea, abdominal cramps and diarrhea. Long-term complications may include severe arthritis. If you believe that you became sick from consuming a recalled product, seek medical attention immediately.
Consumers who purchased the recalled product should dispose of it immediately or return it to the Point of Sale for a full refund.
