Doritos Chilli Heatwave bags are being recalled over possible allergy risk | Food | Life & Style

PepsiCo is recalling two pack sizes of Doritos Chilli Heatwave because they contain milk which is not mentioned on the label. 

This means the product is a possible health risk for anyone with an allergy or intolerance to milk or milk constituents. 

The company has contacted the relevant allergy support organisations, which will tell their members about the recall, and has issued a point-of-sale notice to its customers. 

The Food Standards Agency (FSA) said other products from Pepsico, which also owns Tropicana brands, Lipton teas and Quaker oats, are not known to be affected. 

The products included in the recall are: 

Product: Doritos Chilli Heatwave 

Pack size: 150g 

‘Best Before’ date: 07/10/2017

Batch codes: GBC209 166 and GBC209 167 (time code affected between 23:47-01:00) 7174

Batch codes: GBC207 166 and GBC207 167 (time code affected between 23:47-0:100) 7187

The FSA has issued the following advice: “If you have bought the above product and have an allergy or intolerance to milk or milk constituents, do not eat it. 

“Instead please call PepsiCo’s consumer care line on 0800 274777 for a full refund.” 

A spokesperson for Pepsico told the Sun Online: “Whilst the packaging does state that the chips are made in a factory which handles milk, the allergen is not declared on the ingredients list and therefore presents an allergen risk for milk. 

“We take the safety and quality of our products very seriously and we are reaching out to consumers through retailers, the FSA, allergen support group networks and our own database of those affected by allergies.” 

AllergyUK alerted Facebook followers to the issue, saying: “Milk Alert! – PepsiCo is recalling two pack sizes of Doritos Chilli Heatwave.”
