Miss Vickie's Chips Recall

OTTAWA – The food recall warning issued on November 3, 2020 has been updated to include additional distribution information. This additional information was identified during the Canadian Food Inspection Agency’s (CFIA) food safety investigation.

On November 2, 2020, PepsiCo Foods Canada took the precautionary measure of issuing a voluntary recall in Ontario, Quebec and Atlantic Canada for a limited number of Miss Vickie’s® potato chip products due to isolated reports of the presence of a small piece of glass found at the bottom of the bag. These recall actions are now complete, however one impacted product was inadvertently shipped to retail customers in Alberta, Brandon – Manitoba and Moose JawSaskatchewan.

The company says no consumer complaints have been received from Alberta, Manitoba or Saskatchewan for the impacted product. The company is working closely with the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) to coordinate the recall.

The impacted product is a very small quantity (630 bags) of one SKU. It’s important to note the “Guaranteed Fresh” dates and “Manufacturing Codes” as this is the only product included in this recall.
