Doritos recalled due to potentially severe allergic reaction


Frito-Lay is recalling select bags of Doritos chips due to undeclared ingredients that could cause concern, the Food and Drug Administration announced earlier this week.

The recall, issued Wednesday, is voluntary. The recalled products were not distributed in Washington.

According to the FDA, the undeclared milk ingredients could potentially cause serious or life-threatening allergic reactions.

The impacted products are 3 1/8 oz. bags of Spicy Sweet Chili Doritos tortilla chips that have a “guaranteed fresh” date of August 9, a UPC code of 28400-42119 and a manufacturing code of 2711 152 05 OR 2712 152 05.

The “guaranteed fresh” date and manufacturing code are located on the front of the package, and the UPC code is located on the back.  The recalled products were distributed in Georgia, Kentucky, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia and West Virginia.

At this point, there is no report of illness in the areas where the chips were sold and Frito-Lay is working with the FDA.

Consumers with the impacted chips can return the product to a retailer for a full refund or contact Frito-Lay Consumer Relations at 1-800-352-4477.

The lines will be open Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. EST.
