Detroit, MI—Better Made Snack Foods, in cooperation with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), voluntarily recalled Better Made 3-ounce Original Potato Sticks due to potential allergen hazards associated with them. The FDA announced the recall on Sunday, May 30, 2010.

Detroit-based Better Made Snack Foods issued the product safety recall because the packaging failed to list dairy as an ingredient.

Subsequently, consumers who have allergies to dairy products may be vulnerable to a serious allergic reaction if the Potato Sticks are ingested. No illnesses or adverse events have been reported in connection with the recall.

The Original Potato Sticks were the only product affected by the recall. The snack food was available for purchase in local stores throughout Michigan.

According to the FDA, “The product comes in a 3-ounce package with a UPC# 0-41633-01203-9, with an expiration date of July 23rd on the front with a time stamp that has the first seven digits that read 0706112.”

Consumers have been urged to cease use of the 3-ounce packages of Better Made Original Potato Sticks. Individuals who have purchased the product are also advised to call the Better Made Hotline at (800) 409-9427 for a full reimbursement.
