Frito-Lay Recalls Jalapeño-Flavored Chips

Maybe this is a sign to lay off the chips for a little while

If you currently have your hand in a bag of jalapeño-flavored Lay's Kettle Cooked potato chips, you might want to crumple it up and throw it in the trash (and then wash your hands), as the product could be contaminated with salmonella bacteria.

The snack company issued a recall last week for two types of jalapeño-flavored chips— Lay's Kettle Cooked Jalapeño Flavored Potato Chips and Miss Vickie's Jalapeño Flavored Kettle Cooked Potato Chips. Apparently, both products are coated in a seasoning blend that might contain traces of the grotesque bacteria. And though we're all for interesting chip flavors like pickle and chile limón, salmonella isn't one of them.

According to the FDA, the specific items involved include all sizes that have a "guaranteed fresh" date of July 4 or prior, and June 20 for multipacks containing the jalapeño chips.

We're not sure if this might be a sign to lay off the potato chips for a while, but we're definitely getting our salty, jalapeño fix elsewhere.
