Herr’s Sour Cream & Onion Potato Chips Recalled
Herr's announces a voluntary recall of select bags of Sour Cream and Onion Potato Chips due to a packaging error.
Herr Foods Inc. has initiated a voluntary recall of certain bags of its 1.875 oz. Sour Cream & Onion Potato Chip due to a packaging error that incorrectly states that the product is gluten free. They were distributed nationwide through retail stores, distributors, and Internet sales. These products were sold as individual bags.
The bags are a metallic green color with a red Herr's logo at the top. Retailers have been asked to remove the affected chips from shelves. The lot number is found at the upper right-hand corner on the front of the package below the statement "Guaranteed Fresh Until."

While 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." Gluten is the protein that naturally occurs in wheat, rye, barley, and crossbreeds of these grains.
Most people can eat gluten, but in individuals with celiac disease, gluten intake gradually damages the intestines, prevents the absorption of vitamins and minerals, and can lead to other health problems. Symptoms can include diarrhea, fatigue, headaches, abdominal pain, brain fog, rashes, nausea, vomiting, and other reactions. Herr’s has not received any reported illnesses to date.
Herr Foods announced the recall to prevent consumers who are allergic or sensitive to gluten from consuming this product.
