December 17, 2008

The Smith's Snackfood Company (Chatsworth, NSW) has recalled packages of Smith's Classic Crinkle Cut Potato Chips Salt and Vinegar, after discovering pieces of rubber in some packages. The Company warns that the rubber could present a choking hazard.

The recall encompasses the following packages of Potato Chips, which were produced at Smith's Queensland plant and distributed throughout Australia:

  • Salt and Vinegar Multipack Box 15pack; Best Before 12 Feb 09; Lot code GD
  • Salt and Vinegar 50g/100g/175g/200g; Best Before 12 Feb 09; Lot code GC

No other Smith's products are affected by this recall.

The recalled items have been on the market for approximately four weeks. They are sold via Coles and Woolworths Metcash, in corner stores, service stations and schools, and in vending machines.

Smith's asks its customers to return the recalled items to the place of purchase for a full refund. Customers who purchased the chips from a vending machine should call the Company, toll-free, at 1800 555 107 between the hours of 9:00 am and 6:00 pm, Eastern Summer Time.
