Utz recalls some tortilla chips over possible milk allergen

- A voluntary recall has been issued for a tortilla chip brand, just days before Cinco de Mayo is celebrated by many.

Utz Quality Foods, a Pennsylvania-based chips and snack food maker, announced a voluntary recall Thursday for some of its tortilla chips because they may contain milk. People who have an allergy or are sensitive to milk could have serious or a life-threatening allergic reaction, according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

The brands include Golden Flake, Good Health, Utz and Weis brand tortilla chip products. The items have been shipped to 31 states, including Arizona, Florida, Georgia, as well as the District of Columbia.

The company, based in Hanover, Pennsylvania, says the chips may contain milk not listed in the ingredients, which can lead to serious or life-threatening reactions to people with dairy allergies. There have been no reported illness, according to the FDA. 

Anyone who purchased the chips can return them for a refund of exchange. The product items and expirations dates are listed in the FDA recall, which can be found by clicking here
