PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) — Utz Quality Foods is voluntarily recalling several tortilla chip items due to potential contamination of undeclared milk allergen.
According to the Food and Drug Administration, select expiration dates of some Golden Flake, Good Health, Utz and Weis branded tortilla chips may contain an undeclared milk allergen. Those with severe milk allergies who eat the chips run the risk of a serious or life-threatening allergic reaction.
The chips were sold at grocery stores and retail outlets in more than 30 states, including Rhode Island and Massachusetts.
No illnesses have been reported at this time, but consumers should not eat the products subject to the recall. Those products can be returned to the place of purchase for a full refund.
