RECALL: Old Dutch potato chips recalled due to salmonella risk

Check your cupboards—Old Dutch Foods Ltd. is recalling a popular flavour of potato chips due to possible salmonella contamination.

Old Dutch Foods Ltd is recalling Old Dutch brand Cheddar & Sour Cream Potato Chips due to possible salmonella contamination. Here are the affected products which have been sold in Alberta, British Columbia, Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Northern Ontario:

What should you do?

If you think you’ve become sick from consuming a recalled product, call your doctor.

If you have the recalled products in your home, throw them out or return them to the store where they were purchased.

Food contaminated with salmonella may not look or smell spoiled but can still make you sick. Young children, pregnant women, the elderly and people with weakened immune systems may contract serious and sometimes deadly infections. Healthy people may experience short-term symptoms such as fever, headache, vomiting, nausea, abdominal cramps and diarrhea. Long-term complications may include severe arthritis.
