Allergy Alert: Margaritaville Tortilla Chips

El Matador Enterprises (Grand Rapids, MI) has recalled 13-ounce bags of Margaritaville Island Lime Tortilla Chips, because an undeclared ingredient – whey – was present in the spice blend used to coat the chips. The affected bags are labeled with a Best Before date of December 6, 2008 and a UPC of 647671310122.

Whey is a milk protein, and may cause a severe allergic reaction when consumed by an individual who is allergic to milk. The Tortilla Chips are not harmful to persons who do not suffer from a milk allergy.

Anyone who purchased the recalled product may return it to the store for a full refund. Consumers with questions about this recall should contact Carol Bahri at (877) 791-6767.
