Frito-Lay initiated the voluntary recall of select 1 1/8 oz. packages of Oven Baked Lay’s BBQ. The product is being recalled because its package face is incorrectly labeled with the Frito-Lay gluten-free (GF) logo, while the ingredient panel and disclosures on the back of the packaging correctly indicate that the product contains wheat and barley, according to the National Association for Celiac Awareness.
As a result, there could be confusion whether this product is gluten-free. This was an isolated incident and we are putting parameters in place to prevent this from occurring again.
The affected product was sold to foodservice and vending customers, as well as club retailers as one of the products included in the Baked! & Popped Mix 30 ct. Variety Pack Tray and Baked! Mix 30 ct. Variety Pack Cube.
The company has notified the FDA, as well as customers and partners.
