Popular chip manufacturer Frito-Lay is recalling their Smartfood Delight Sea Salt flavored popcorn. The popcorn is being recalled after Frito-Lay was informed that certain bags of the popcorn were accidently filled with undeclared milk ingredients. The bags were filled with cheese flavored tortilla chips instead of the popcorn.
Someone with an allergy to milk could be at risk if they were to eat the recalled popcorn.
The popcorn was sold individually and in two different variety packs.
How to know if your chips have been recalled

- 16 count Crunch & Pop Mix Variety Pack Sack with a use by date of 18 DEC 2018 OR 1 JAN 2019.
The chips were not sold in Pennsylvania; however, they were sold in Ohio and West Virginia and online at many retailers.
