Lay’s Potato Chips Recalled For Salmonella Risk
Frito-Lay has recalled many of their potato chips due to the potential presence of Salmonella in the seasoning.
Jalapeño Flavored Lay’s Kettle Cooked potato chips and Jalapeño Flavored Miss Vickie’s Kettle Cooked potato chips contain a seasoning blend with jalapeno powder that could contain Salmonella, so all packages of these chips are being voluntarily recalled.

All of the following multipack offerings that have a “use by” date of JUN 20 or prior printed on the multipack package. In addition, a “guaranteed fresh” date of JUL 4 or prior is printed on the front upper panel of the individual recalled product packages inside each multipack offering. Any other products or flavors contained in these multipacks are not being recalled.
