Announcement

Shearer’s Foods, LLC of Massillon, OH is recalling Food Lion brand 7.75 ounce packages of Dill Pickle Flavored Potato Chips because they may contain undeclared milk.

The recalled Dill Pickle Flavored Potato Chips were distributed to Food Lion stores in NC, SC, GA, PA, KY, VA, TN, DE, MD, and WV between Dec 1st, 2017 and July 19, 2018.

The product comes in a 7.75 ounce bag marked with the UPC # 035826103925 and with lot codes; 03333405, 03234705, 03334705, 03135505, 03100305, 03200305, 03301205, 03101905, 03202605, 03203409, 03303905, 03104005, 03204605, 03105405, 03305405, 03106106, 03106805, 03307305, 03308105, 03108205, 03109005, 03310305, 03110405, 03111105, 03212505, 03312505, 03113105, 03213105, 03314409, 03114509, 03214509, 03115408, 03215408.

Customers who purchased the recalled product from Food Lion may dispose of it or return the product to its place of purchase for a full refund.
