Two popular brands of chips have been recalled in Ontario and across Canada.

Frito Lay Canada announced a volunteer recall of SunChips Harvest Cheddar Flavour Multigrain Snacks and Munchies Original Snack Mix on May 13.

A seasoning supplier informed Frito Lay Canada that an ingredient supplied to it by a third party was potentially contaminated with salmonella.

“Although no salmonella was found in the seasoning supplied to Frito Lay Canada, the company has decided to recall these products out of an abundance of caution,” Frito Lay Canada said in a press release.

Salmonella is a bacterium that can possibly cause diarrhea, fever and abdominal cramps.

Most people recover without treatment. But in some cases, diarrhea may be so severe that the patient needs to be hospitalized. The elderly, infants and those with impaired immune systems are more likely to have a severe illness.

Frito Lay Canada is working closely with the Canadian Food Inspection Agency to ensure the recalled products are removed from the marketplace.

The recall only applies to the specific products and flavours listed below with the specified best-before dates. No other flavours of SunChips are impacted.

Consumers should check their pantries for any of the products listed below and dispose of them.
