On September 27th, 2018, the adored health food grocer, Whole Foods Market, issued a recall for one of their most prized popular snacks: tortilla chips.
The grocer’s own brand, 365 Everyday Value, is recalling their White Corn Tortilla Chips because the product may have undeclared milk. For some, the dairy concern might not be an issue, but for those with dairy allergies, this recall should be taken very seriously.
