Additional information:
The US Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) reports the following Potato Chips are subject to this recall:

  • Herr’s Sour Cream & Onion Potato Chips, 1.875 ounce bag; product codes: January 02, 2016, up to and including January 30, 2016; UPC: 72600 00061; Herr’s Product Code: 122

Please consult the photograph above for details of the food’s packaging, design and retail presentation.

According to the FDA, the packages are a green metallic color bag with a red Herr’s logo at the top center of the package. The lot number is located at the upper right hand corner on the front of the package below the statement “Guaranteed Fresh Until”. The UPC number is located at the lower right hand corner of the back panel of the package.

While the back panel of the recalled Potato Chips specifically lists “Wheat” in the ingredient statement as well as the phrase “Contains Wheat” in its related allergen statement, the front panel of the package erroneously features the words “Gluten Free”. Gluten is the protein that naturally occurs in wheat, rye, barley, and crossbreeds of these grains.

Instead, return the product to the store where you purchased it for a full refund.
