A statement from the Food Standards Agency (FSA) said: “This product contains milk making it a possible health risk for anyone with an allergy or intolerance to milk or milk constituents.”
The FSA added: “PepsiCo is recalling the above product from customers and has contacted the relevant allergy support organisations, which will tell their members about the recall.
“The company has also issued a point-of-sale notice to its customers.
“These notices explain to customers why the product is being recalled and tell them what to do if they have bought the product.”
If you have bought the crisps and have an allergy or intolerance to milk you should not eat them.

Sometimes there will be a problem with a food product that means it should not be sold.
Then it might be ‘withdrawn’ (taken off the shelves) or ‘recalled’ (when customers are asked to return the product).
Sometimes foods have to be withdrawn or recalled if there is a risk to consumers because the allergy labelling is missing or incorrect or if there is any other food allergy risk.
