We all love our Herr’s potato chips, but if you stick to a gluten-free diet, you’re going to want to step away from the Sour Cream and Onion chips now: As this press release put out by the company states, the Pennsylvania-based Herr Foods Inc. has recalled certain bags of its Herr’s Sour Cream and Onion Potato Chips after accidentally labeling the bags as gluten-free.

The recalled bags, distributed nationally and sold as individual bags, are 1.875 ounce metallic-green bags of Herr’s Sour Cream and Onion with code dates from January 02, 2016 through January 30, 2016, a UPC number of 7260000061 and a Herr’s product code of 122. But basically, you’ll know if you have one of the recalled bags if you have a bag of Herr’s Sour Cream and Onion chips and you also see the words “gluten free” on the package. The Sour Cream and Onion chips contain wheat, which is listed in the ingredients.

If you have no problem with gluten, go ahead and eat up. There isn’t anything wrong with chips aside from that fact that they are not in fact a gluten-free product. If you have celiac disease or have a gluten intolerance and happen to have picked up one of the bags, return them to the store where you picked them up for a full refund.
