These Popular Trader Joe's Chips Are Being Recalled, FDA Says
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is alerting consumers about a recall of the 9-ounce bags of Trader Joe's Restaurant Style White Corn Tortilla Chips because they may contain undeclared milk. Anyone with an allergy or sensitivity to milk who unknowingly consumes these chips may develop a serious or life-threatening reaction.
The chips come in a white bag with blue designs and brown lettering. All have a "Sell By" date of 08/09/21, 08/10/21, or 08/11/21 in the upper right-hand corner on the front of the bag. They were produced by Snak King Corporation but sold at Trader Joe's locations in over 20 states across the country. To see if yours is one, go to the FDA's website. No illnesses have been reported.
There is no mention of what sparked the Trader Joe's tortilla chips recall, but the announcement says that anyone with the bags in their pantry should stop consuming them and return them to the place of purchase for a full refund.
Symptoms of a milk allergy include hives, wheezing, coughing, vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal cramping, runny nose, and watery eyes, as well as swelling, itching, or tingling around the lips or mouth, according to The Mayo Clinic. An allergy is also different than lactose intolerance, which doesn't involve the immune system.
This isn't the only recall affecting products at big-name grocery stores right now. 7,464 Packages of This Snack Are Being Urgently Recalled From Kroger Stores.
