Several brands of potato chips recalled due to possible salmonella

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – Shearer’s Foods announced a recall of several flavors of potato chips due to possible salmonella contamination.

Each of the products’ seasoning was made with milk ingredients from Valley Milk Products that may have been contaminated with the bacteria.

Salmonella can cause serious, sometimes fatal, infections in children, the elderly or people with weakened immune systems. In healthy people, it can cause a fever, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain.

No illnesses have been reported yet, but Shearer’s Foods is voluntarily recalling the products as a precaution.
