Mikesell's Snack Food Company has issued a voluntary recall on all sizes of its Honey Barbeque Potato Chips.

This recall is in response to the mislabeling of a gluten free claim. The recalled snacks were distributed to various grocery and convenience stores in Ohio, Indiana, Kentucky and Central Illinois between Nov. 5 and March 5. No other products were involved.
