Limited number of bags of Ruffles chips recalled in northeastern Ohio and Altoona, PA.

 
Jul 23, 2018

Out of an abundance of caution, Frito-Lay has voluntarily recalled a very limited number of bags of Ruffles Original and Ruffles Cheddar & Sour Cream flavored potato chips that were distributed in retail stores in northeastern Ohio and Altoona, PA.

There is a possibility a very small amount of cleaning solution could have come in contact with certain chips in some of these bags. If a consumer ate one of these chips, there is a possibility of local irritation to the mouth and/or throat. This is an isolated incident and no injuries related to this matter have been reported to date.
