FRITO-LAY ANNOUNCES A VOLUNTARY LIMITED RECALL OF CHEETOS BRAND CRUNCHY SNACKS

 PLANO, Texas, Dec. 30 /PRNewswire/ -- Frito-Lay, Inc., announced today that it is voluntarily recalling certain packages of CHEETOS brand Crunchy snacks that are sold in the red bag, in Wisconsin, Minnesota, Iowa, Illinois, Michigan, Indiana, North Dakota, and South Dakota. This is a precautionary action because glass particles have been found in one of Frito-Lay's 14 plants which manufacture CHEETOS brand Crunchy snacks. No glass particles have been found in manufactured CHEETOS brand Crunchy snacks and no consumer incidents have been reported. Frito-Lay sales personnel in these areas have been alerted and are taking immediate action to remove and replace the product.
 Only CHEETOS brand Crunchy snacks in the red bag with the product codes and dates listed below are being recalled. (CHEETOS snacks in blue, green and purple bags, as well as any CHEETOS in the remaining U.S., are not affected.)
