Frito-Lay issues voluntary recall

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) — Frito-Lay has issued a voluntary recall of select Rold Gold Tiny Twists, Rold Gold Thins, Rold Gold Sticks and Rold Gold Honey Wheat Braided due to a potential undeclared peanut allergen.

This recall is the result of a recent recall by a Frito-Lay supplier of certain lots of flour for undeclared peanut residue. The Rold Gold Products subject to the recall may have been produced using the recalled flour and may contain low levels of undeclared peanut residue.

The affected Rold Gold packages are sold in retail stores as well as foodservice and vending customers throughout the United States. They have “guaranteed fresh” dates ranging from June 28, 2016 to August 23, 2016 on the front of the package. There is also a 9-digit manufacturing code that includes the numbers “32” in the second and third position (example: x32xxxxxx).

The following products that are impacted:

  • Rold Gold Tiny Twists – 1 oz. , 2 oz., 16 oz. and 20½ oz.
  • Rold Gold Thins – 4 oz. and 16 oz.
