Late yesterday, Tim’s Cascade Snacks of Algona, Washington recalled its ‘HAWAIIAN® Kettle Style Potato Chips – SWEET MAUI ONION’ AND ‘HAWAIIAN – SWEET MAUI ONION RINGS’ because they have the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella. The recalled chips were distributed nationwide and in Canada through retail stores, distributors, direct delivery and internet sales. These products were sold as individual bags and as components of packs, including variety packs. No other ‘Hawaiian’ products are involved in this recall.
