DETROIT (WXYZ) — Better Made Snack Foods of Detroit is recalling its 10-ounce packages of Original Potato Chips due to an undeclared allergen.

The company says the flavored chips may contain undeclared milk, and "people who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to milk run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume these products."

The $3.99 recalled product was distributed nationwide in retail stores and through mail orders, according to the company.

Customers should check to see if they have the product with this information:

Lot # 62090431442 thru Lot # 62090431520 Lot # 85100431442 thru Lot # 85100431520 Use by date of 10 AUG 2019 The recalled bags will also have a UPC code of 041633063048

No illnesses have been reported to date, the company says.

The recall was initiated after it was discovered that a package of 10-ounce Original Potato Chips dated 10 AUG 2019 did not contain Original Potato Chips but instead contained Cheddar and Sour Cream Potato Chips which contain milk. Subsequent investigation indicates the problem was caused by a temporary breakdown in the company’s production and packaging processes which may have affected 660 bags of 10-ounce Original Potato Chips.

According to Better Made, no other snack food products or flavors are recalled.
