The recall covers Herr's smoked chipotle-flavored kettle cooked potato chips and Peddler's Pantry smoke-dried chipotle-flavored kettle cooked potato chips. They were made with an ingredient in the seasoning that may contain traces of Salmonella bacteria. Although tests have shown no existence of salmonella in the seasoning that was supplied to Dieffenbach's, out of abundance of caution we are voluntarily issuing the recall of these products in conjunction with FDA guidance.

No other Herr's products are involved.

Are you a fan of Sour Cream and Cheddar chips?

There have been no reported illnesses associated with eating these chips.

Trump haters in uproar after he misspells 'Unprecedented' on Twitter
I don't even want to imagine what will happen when his finger isn't only over his tweet button, but the big red button. Trump recently broke decades of diplomatic protocol by taking a phone call from Taiwanese President Tsai Ing-wen.

The recalled product was sold only in Pennsylvania, Ohio, Virginia, West Virginia, Kentucky, Indiana, Maryland, New York State and Tennessee. In severe cases, salmonella can kill people with weak immune systems, young children, seniors and pregnant women.

Anyone who has consumed any of the recalled products and developed symptoms of Salmonella infection should seek medical attention and tell their doctors about the possible exposure to the pathogen. The most common manifestations of salmonellosis are diarrhea, abdominal cramps, and fever within eight to 72 hours.

If you bought one of the recalled products, throw out the chips and take the receipt to your store for a refund.
