Frito-Lay announced a recall of select Rold Gold products on Monday, citing a potential undeclared peanut allergen.
According to a news release by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the recall results from a recall of a Frito-Lay supplier of certain lots of flour that had undeclared peanut residue. Affected Frito-Lay products may have been produced with the recalled flour.
