Potato chips recalled

Miss Vickie’s brand of jalapeno kettle cooked potato chips are the subject of a recall announced April 21 by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency.

The chips may be contaminated with salmonella bacteria, but there have been no reported illnesses in connection with eating them.

The CFIA said the recall was triggered by Miss Vickie’s Canada. The chips have been distributed nationally.

Affected products include the 40, 66 and 220 gram packages of the jalapeno chips, all with “guaranteed fresh” dates up to and including June 20.

The chips should not be eaten and can be discarded or returned to place of purchase.

Eating food contaminated with salmonella can cause fever, headache, vomiting, abdominal cramps and diarrhea. Long-term, it can cause severe arthritis.
