Stop & Shop recalls tortilla chips for allergens

    The Stop & Shop Supermarket chain has removed from its shelves tortilla chip products that may contain undeclared wheat and soy, which may trigger allergic reaction among some consumers, the AP reports.

    The supermarket chain said that the products are being pulled from shelves at its 390 stores in New Jersey, Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New York and Rhode Island.

    Stop & Shop says it was notified by Garden of Eatin, a unit of Boulder, Colorado-based Hain Celestial Group, that the products contain the undeclared allergens.

    Garden of Eatin says the products have been recalled voluntarily elsewhere and with the knowledge of the Food and Drug Administration.

    Stop & Shop says it has not received reports of illness. Supermarkets are offering refunds.
