Recall issued for batches of Route 11 potato chips

WASHINGTON – Some batches of Route 11 potato chips are being recalled after a possible connection with a salmonella scare.

Route 11 Potato Chips is recalling two batches of its sour cream and chive potato chips because milk powder used in the seasoning was made on equipment that had not been properly sanitized, the Northern Virginia Daily reports.

The batches in question are 2-ounce bags with the UPC code 4493500062, and 6-ounce bags with UPC code 4493500061, both with best-by dates between Feb. 9 and June 10, 2017, according to a release from Martin’s and Giant food stores, who are participating in the recall.

Sarah Cohen, the president and founder of Route 11, told the Daily that the recall will affect about 9,000 cases of chips.

Samantha Krepps, of Martin’s and Giant, told the paper that those with a Martin’s loyalty card who bought the recalled chips will get a phone call telling them they can bring them in for a recall. The chips will be taken off the shelves, but the affected UPCs will also be blocked at the registers so they can’t be bought accidentally.
