Possible presence of naturally occurring toxins, tropane alkoloids, in tortilla chips.
Batches of various brands of organic tortilla chips are being recalled due to the possible presence of tropane alkaloids. Tropane alkaloids are naturally occurring toxins which are present in certain plant species. Adverse effects in humans can include changes in heart rate, decreased salivary and sweat secretion, pupil dilation, dizziness, headache, and nausea. Contamination of food can occur if parts (mostly seeds) of tropane alkaloid-containing plant species are unintentionally harvested with agricultural crops. Point-of-sale recall notices will be displayed in stores supplied with the implicated batches.
Update of 28/07/2022: Some additional products and packs are now also implicated, please see 2022.45 (Update 1)
