The FDA, along with Frito-Lay, announced a recall for a limited number of Lay’s Wavy potato chips on Wednesday, August 11th. An investigation that was launched into the issue found 31 bags of Wavy Lay’s Original Potato Chips contained undeclared milk ingredients.

While unharmful to most consumers, the FDA warns, “If consumers have an allergy or severe sensitivity to milk, they are encouraged not to consume the product and discard it immediately.” The statement goes on to say, “Those with an allergy or severe sensitivity to milk run the risk of a serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume product contained inside the recalled bags.”


Only 31 bags have been recalled so far. The majority of the affected product was distributed in North Caroline, South Carolina, and Virginia, and was available for purchase as early as July 23rd. Here’s what you need to know about the recalled bags to make sure your chips are safe:
