It’s like clockwork. Every day we hear of a brand new recall over a potential health risk, like salmonella. Today, Connecticut’s time has come to join the great recall war of 2016.
Newstimes reports that Deep River Snacks issued a voluntary recall of its sour cream and onion kettle flavored chips. The company insists the recall was made out of an “abundance of caution.” It was because one of their suppliers cautioned that one of their chip seasonings possibly contained Salmonella.
The company did investigate the seasoning, buttermilk powder, but found no traces of contamination. So far Deep River Snacks has not received reports of illness. Still, that’s not stopping them from exercising caution.
Deep River Snacks is encouraging customers to discard any and all 2-ounce and 5-ounce packages with best-by dates from Nov. 9, 2016, to June 2, 2017. The company also requests that those affected by the recall call them at 860-434-7347 or contact the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
Although it’s possible the company could be making high mass out of nothing, it does show how much they care about their customers.
Then again, food distributors have to be paranoid considering how sue-happy the nation is. All it takes is for one funky-tasting chip and the company could face a hefty financial blow. Then again, one recall is enough to cause mass panic. So no one really wins.
In short: sour cream and onion bad. Deep River Snacks good.
