Contaminated Kettle Chips recalled by FSA

4 August 2011

kettle_chipsThe Food Standards Agency (FSA) have issued a recall notice on four varieties of Kettle Chips.

So if you've got some in your desk drawer for an afternoon snack, watch yourself.

Why? Well, thousands of packets aren't exactly living up to the claim that they contain "absolutely nothing artificial". Basically, a batch may have been contaminated with pieces of plastic that look like crisps.

Plastic crisps. Tasty.

The company itself says: "As a precautionary measure, we are asking customers not to eat the product and to contact us for a full refund."

If you've got a 150g bag of Wave Cut Lightly Salted, Wave Cut Salt & Pepper, Wave Cut Salt & Vinegar, or Lightly Salted Kettle Chips, don't munch on them quite so absent-mindedly.

All of the four batches affected have a best before date of 29 Oct 2011.

Thousands of packets of Kettle Chips have been recalled after a batch of the products may have been contaminated with pieces of plastic that look like crisps.

    Fuck that. Open them. Eat the crisps that look like they are made from potato and not from plastic. Then contact them. Choke a bit, saying you've just coughed up some plastic.
