Frito-Lay has issued a voluntary recall of its Ruffles All Dressed potato chips after it was discovered that certain bags of the chips were "inadvertently filled with another flavor of potato chips, potentially exposing consumers to undeclared milk."

The recall affects select 16 1/8 ounce bags of the All Dressed chips. No other Ruffles products, sizes or flavors of chips were recalled, and bags of the All Dressed chips found in variety packs are not affected by the recall.
