Frito-Lay announced a limited voluntary recall of select Spicy Sweet Chili Doritos tortilla chips because they may contain undeclared milk ingredients. People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to milk run the risk of a serious or life threatening allergic reaction if they consume the affected Spicy Sweet Chili Doritos tortilla chips. The recalled product also includes additional undeclared ingredients including Yellow 5, Artificial Flavor, Tomato Powder, other Artificial Color (including Yellow 6 and Red 40), Lactic Acid, Citric Acid and Red and Green Bell Pepper Powder.
No other Doritos products or flavors are impacted.
The impacted products are 3 1/8 oz. bags of Spicy Sweet Chili Doritos tortilla chips that have a “guaranteed fresh” date of August 9, a UPC code of 28400-42119 and a manufacturing code of 2711 152 05 OR 2712 152 05. The “guaranteed fresh” date and manufacturing code are located on the front of the package, and the UPC code is located on the back. The recalled products were distributed in Georgia, Kentucky, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia and West Virginia. No other states have been impacted.
The recall was initiated after it was discovered that a select number of Spicy Sweet Chili Doritos tortilla chip bags were inadvertently filled with Nacho Cheese Doritos tortilla chips at one of the company’s production facilities. Nacho Cheese Doritos contain different ingredients, potentially exposing consumers to undeclared milk and the other above-mentioned ingredients.
No confirmed illness has been reported to date. Frito-Lay has informed the FDA of our actions.
Consumers with any product noted above can return the product to a retailer for a full refund, or contact Frito-Lay Consumer Relations at 1-800-352-4477 (9 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. CST, Monday- Friday).
