Womelsdorf, PA - Dieffenbach's Potato Chips, Inc. is issuing a voluntary recall for our Sour Cream & Onion Kettle Chips. This decision was made after being informed by a seasoning supplier, that an ingredient in the seasoning may contain traces of Salmonella. Although tests have shown no existence of Salmonella in the seasoning that was supplied to Dieffenbach's, out of abundance of caution we are voluntarily issuing the recall of these products in conjunction with FDA guidance.
