The Frito-Lay company has issued a voluntary recall of a limited number of their Wavy Lays Original Potato Chips due to an undeclared milk ingredient in the processing.  The concern would be those people who have sensitivities or allergies to milk and dairy products.

According to details released by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, the "recall is the result of an investigation following a consumer contact".  However, the agency is reporting that there have been no allergic reactions reported at this time and no medical issues associated with the Wavy Lays potato chip product.
