Welp, this couldn't have come at a worse time. Cinco de Mayo is tomorrow and several brands of tortilla chips have been voluntarily recalled! But, don't fret. It's not as bad as it seems.

The Food and Drug Administration states that "Utz® Quality Foods, LLC, is voluntarily recalling select expiration dates of some Golden Flake, Good Health, Utz and Weis Brand Tortilla Chip items due to potential contamination of undeclared milk allergen. People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to milk run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume these products." No illnesses associated with this voluntary recall have been reported as of yet, so it appears Cinco de Mayo is saved for now.

The good news for Iowa is that it appears that these brands were not distributed to our home state. But as for our neighbors in Illinois, Minnesota, and Missouri, it's a different story. The full list of product items and their expiration dates are listed below.
