Frito Lay Recalls Mislabeled Oven Baked Lay’s BBQ: They Are NOT Gluten Free

by John Libonati on June 3rd, 2014


frito lay oven baked bbq recallThis just in from Frito Lay. The company accidentally printed Gluten Free certification logos on a certain number gluten-containing Oven Baked Lay's BBQ crisps.

From the Frito Lay website:

IMPORTANT NOTE

On Monday, June 2, 2014 Frito-Lay initiated the voluntary recall of select 1 1/8 oz. packages of Oven Baked Lay’s BBQ. The product is being recalled because its package face is incorrectly labeled with the Frito-Lay gluten-free (GF) logo, while the ingredient panel and disclosures on the back of the packaging correctly indicate that the product contains wheat and barley. As a result, there could be confusion whether this product is gluten free. This was an isolated incident and we are putting parameters in place to prevent this from occurring again.

The affected product was sold to our foodservice and vending customers, as well as club retailers as one of the products included in the Baked! & Popped Mix 30 ct. Variety Pack Tray and Baked! Mix 30 ct. Variety Pack Cube. We have notified the FDA, as well as all of our relevant customers and partners, and we are working quickly to retrieve the product.

Here is a list of Frito Lay's Gluten-free Snacks:

U.S. Products Not Containing Gluten Ingredients

The Frito-Lay products listed below do not contain wheat, rye, barley or oat ingredients (we include oats in this list as a precaution as oats are often commingled with gluten-containing grains).  Please note however, some of the products listed below may be manufactured on the same lines as products that contain gluten.  Although our lines are cleaned between production runs, Frito-Lay has not tested these products for gluten content and the ingredients in these products may have come into contact with gluten-containing products prior to manufacturing.  Individuals who are sensitive to gluten should take these factors into consideration in consuming these products.

Please note: The information provided pertains only to products made and distributed in the U.S. Products sold in other countries under similar brands may be made using slightly different recipes and ingredients to accommodate local needs and preferences.
