The recalled chips were distributed to retail stores, club stores and institutional/restaurant accounts in addition to mail order accounts throughout Alabama, Connecticut, District of Columbia, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Massachusetts, Maryland, North Carolina, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Virginia,  and West Virginia.

The product comes in various sized bag and boxed packages marked with sell by dates from February 9, 2011 through March 30, 2011.

No confirmed illnesses have been reported to date in connection with this problem.

This recall has been initiated due to unintended trace amounts of flavorings containing soy protein coming in contact with our normal spice flavorings during production.  Therefore, the above listed products may contain ingredients that include soy protein allergens.  Product packaging does not identify soy protein on the labeling.

Production of the product was suspended until the area in which the seasoning was being utilized could be sanitized.

This concern was also addressed by the removal of products from retail outlets that did not state the allergen on the label.

Consumers who have purchased the products listed above are urged to return them to the place of purchase for a full refund.  Consumers with questions may contact the company at 1-800-548-1200.
