Deep River Snacks is issuing a recall for certain Sour Cream and Onion Kettle Chips after being informed by a 3rd party ingredient supplier that buttermilk powder used in the seasoning may contain traces of Salmonella. Although no pathogenic bacteria have been found in any of our ingredients or in any of the Deep River Snack products, out of the abundance of caution, we have decided to recall products produced using the affected ingredient from this supplier. No illnesses or adverse health effects resulting from these events have been reported to date.
Salmonella is a bacterium that can cause diarrhea, fever, and abdominal cramps and most individuals recover without treatment. In some cases, diarrhea may be so severe that the patient needs to be hospitalized. The elderly, infants, and those with impaired immune systems are more likely to have severe illness.
The item UPC number can be found on the back of the bag underneath the bar code. The best by date can be found printed on the front of the bag, in the upper right quadrant near the Deep River Snacks logo. The best by date is printed in the format: DD MMM YYYY (e.g 10 DEC 2016.)
If you have any of the products listed below, they should be thrown away or returned to your local Big Y for a full refund.
