Chip maker Frito-Lay has recalled one of its popcorn products because they were filled with cheese-flavored tortilla chips by mistake.

A recall has been issued for 30 states where Smartfood Delight Sea Salt Flavored Popcorn is on sale at grocery stores, including Minnesota.

Because they're filled with cheese-flavored tortilla chips instead of popcorn, it presents a risk to people with allergies as the flavoring contains "undeclared milk ingredients," the FDA says.

The affected products are 1/2 oz. bags sold as part of the two variety packs pictured above. People with milk allergies or sensitivities could be at serous risk of life-threatening allergic reaction if they eat the chips.

The affected products are:

  • 16 count Smartfood Delight Variety Pack Sack with "use by" dates of 4 Dec., 2018 or 18 Dec. 2018, and 11-digit manufacturing code that will include the letters AM in the second and third position (example: xAMxxxxxxxx)
  • 16 count Crunch & Pop Mix Variety Pack Sack with "use by" dates of 18 Dec., 2018 OR 1 Jan., 2019, and 11-digit manufacturing code that includes the letters AM in the second and third position.
  • 1/2 oz. bags of Smartfood Delight Sea Salt Flavored Popcorn with a "guaranteed fresh" date of 1 Jan., 2019 and a 9-digit manufacturing code of 615325107 printed on the front upper panel.

The FDA says that as of Monday afternoon, no illnesses have been linked to the recalled popcorn.
