Herr's announces voluntary recall due to packaging error

NOTTINGHAM, Pa. (WTXF) - Herr Foods Inc. announced a voluntary recall of certain bags of its 1.875 oz. Sour Cream & Onion Potato Chips due to a packaging error that incorrectly states that the product is gluten free.

According to Herr Foods, the back panel of the package complies with U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) label regulations by listing "Wheat" in the ingredient statement as well as "Contains Wheat" in its related allergen statement; the front panel of the package erroneously features the words "Gluten Free."
Herr’s Sour Cream & Onion Potato Chips, 1.875 oz. bags only, were distributed nationwide through retail stores, distributors, and internet sales. The products were sold as individual bags. No other bag sizes of Herr’s Sour Cream & Onion Chips are involved with this recall. No other Herr’s products are involved with this recall.

The following product is included in the recall:

The lot number is located at the upper right hand corner on the front of the package below the statement "Guaranteed Fresh Until". The UPC number is located at the lower right hand corner of the back panel of the package.
Herr Foods announced the recall to prevent consumers who are allergic or sensitive to gluten from consuming this product. Consumers with wheat allergies, celiac disease or gluten intolerance should not consume them and should return them to the retailer where they were purchased for a full refund.
