Deep River Snacks Recalls Sour Cream and Onion Potato Chips

Deep River Snacks is issuing a voluntary recall for some of its potato chips due to the risk of salmonella.

The Connecticut-based company said it is recalling its Sour Cream and Onion Kettle Chips after learning that the buttermilk powder used in the seasoning may be contaminated.

"The health and safety of our consumers is always our top priority,” says Jim Goldberg, Deep River Snacks’ founder and CEO. “Although we haven’t found any contaminants in either our seasonings or our finished products, we are taking great precautions to protect our customers.”

While no pathogenic bacteria has not been found in any Deep River products, the company is issuing the recall out of caution. According to the FDA, so far, no illnesses or adverse health effects have been reported.

The sour cream and onion flavored chips were distributed nationally through retail and foodservice outlets:
