Health Local News State News Wednesday, August 26th, 2020

Before you take another bite of that potato chip, listen up.

Frito-Lay says they’re recalling their barbecue flavored chips due to undeclared milk products.

The company says it happened when the chip bags were accidentally filled with another flavor, which contains milk products and could be dangerous to those with life threatening allergies.

The recall affects numerous sizes of the barbecue chip bags and no other flavors were affected.
