FDA warns – limited number of 14.5-ounce and 1-ounce bags of Doritos Nacho Cheese Flavored Tortilla Chips recalled due to undeclared soy, wheat

Frito-Lay, of Plano, Texas, has voluntarily recalled less than 7,000 bags of its 14.5-ounce and 1-ounce Doritos Nacho Cheese Flavored Tortilla Chips due to the possible presence of soy and wheat ingredients, two major allergens not declared on its ingredient statement.

Consumers who are allergic or severely sensitive to soy or wheat could suffer a major, life-threatening allergic reaction upon ingesting the product.

Officials did not specify what caused the problem, but the company’s recall announcement indicates the allergens may have been introduced to the product’s product line through the ingredients for spicy sweet chili tortilla chips.

Distributed only to the state of Pennsylvania, via retail stores and other outlets like foodservice stations and vending machines, the affected products were sold as early as June 29, 2023.
