Urgent Recall of Potato Chips in New York


HANOVER, PA. – In a precautionary move, Utz Quality Foods, LLC. has announced a voluntary recall of its 2.75 oz. Wavy Original Potato Chips, specifically affecting 88 cases, due to an undeclared milk allergen. This recall was prompted after it was discovered that around 1200 single-serve bags were mistakenly filled with seasoned potato chips instead of the intended plain variety.


This mislabeling poses a risk to individuals with a milk allergy or severe sensitivity, as consuming the product could lead to an allergic reaction. The announcement, made on January 25, 2024, and published by the FDA on January 26, 2024, is limited to retail outlets in New York State, with a primary focus on New York City.


To date, no illnesses related to this recall have been reported.

The affected product can be identified by its UPC code 0-41780-19014-7 and an expiration date of May 06, 2024. Consumers can locate the expiration date in the upper right corner of the bag and the UPC code on the lower right-hand corner.


At this time, no other Utz® products are involved in this recall.


Utz Quality Foods is taking proactive steps to ensure consumer safety. Consumers who have purchased the recalled product and have a milk allergy are advised not to consume it. They may dispose of the product and contact Utz Customer Care for a refund at customerservice@utzsnacks.com or by calling 1-800-367-7629, Monday through Friday, from 8:30 am to 5:00 pm Eastern Time.

Retailers in the affected area are being instructed to check their inventories and remove any of the recalled products from their shelves to prevent further purchase.


This recall is a reflection of Utz Quality Foods' commitment to consumer safety and transparency. The company is working diligently to address the issue and prevent future occurrences. Consumers and retailers are encouraged to stay informed and take the necessary precautions as outlined in the recall notice.
