‘Do Not Eat’ Advisory Issued for Popular West Michigan Chips
If you've ever eaten Charley's Chips than there's no doubt about it, they are some of the best tortilla chips you'll ever have. They are a West Michigan staple. Unfortunately, a 'do not eat' advisory has been issued on them.
The Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development (MDARD) sent out the press release on Wednesday the 29th stating that the company was making their products in a facility that was not licensed or inspected by the MDARD.
...all finished products and ingredients have been placed under seizure due to insanitary conditions at the processing facility.
The advisory is not only on the famous chips but also their Gourmet Salsa & House Blend Seasonings.
The products were sold at several locations around West Michigan including (but not limited to):
- Bridge Street Market, Grand Rapids
- Byron Center Meats, Byron Center
- Changing Thymes, Grandville – Chicago Drive location
- D & W Fresh Market/Knapp’s Corner, Grand Rapids
- Green Acres Farm Market, West Olive
- Horrock’s Market, Kentwood
- Paula’s Market, Grand Rapids
- Sunrise Foods (distributor), Grand Rapids
The MDARD advises people to throw away the products or return them where purchased for a refund. It's not said whether anyone has gotten sick or not.
Charley's Chip Company is based out of Wyoming.
