which were mostly sold in Asian grocery stores in Victoria. Due to undeclared allergens, the Australian company revoked the sale of four Lay’s potato chip varieties on July 3, 2022.
The chips may contain milk, wheat, or soy that was not listed on the label, posing a potentially life-threatening risk to people with allergies.

The recall originated in Australia, where the products were only available at Asian grocery stores in Victoria. According to a notice posted by Food Standards Australia New Zealand, this is the case.
