Frito-Lay Voluntarily Recalls Select Packages of Oven Baked Lay's BBQ Chips for Being Mislabeled as Gluten-Free


The following post is from Frito-Lay.

On Monday, June 2, 2014, Frito-Lay initiated the voluntary recall of select 1 1/8 oz. packages of Oven Baked Lay’s BBQ. The product is being recalled because its package face is incorrectly labeled with the Frito-Lay gluten-free (GF) logo, while the ingredient panel and disclosures on the back of the packaging correctly indicate that the product contains wheat and barley.  As a result, there could be confusion whether this product is gluten-free.  This was an isolated incident and we are putting parameters in place to prevent this from occurring again.

The affected product was sold to our foodservice and vending customers, as well as club retailers as one of the products included in the Baked! & Popped Mix 30 ct. Variety Pack Tray and Baked! Mix 30 ct. Variety Pack Cube.  We have notified the FDA, as well as all of our relevant customers and partners, and we are working quickly to retrieve the product.
