Herr's Potato Chip Recall
Herr's has announced a product recall on 2.625 oz. and 8.0 oz. Smoked Chipotle flavored Kettle Potato Chips under the Herr's Brand. These products were flavored with Chipotle seasoning that contained a milk ingredient manufactured by Valley Milk Products LLC. The milk ingredient is being recalled due to a potential risk of Salmonella contamination.
Salmonella is an organism that can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Healthy persons infected with Salmonella often experience fever, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain. In rare circumstances, infection with Salmonella can result in the organism getting into the blood stream and producing more severe illnesses such as arterial infections, endocarditis and arthritis.
Although no lab tests have confirmed the presence of Salmonella in these products and no illnesses have been reported, Herr's is voluntarily issuing an immediate recall of these products in conjunction with FDA guidance with an abundance of caution and with adherence to strict quality standards of Herr Foods Inc.
