The affected products include Walkers Crisps Multi-Packs: 21 packs for the price of 14 promotional packs; 21 pack multipacks; 28 pack multipacks and individual pack size: 25g.

The best before dates are between 13 September 2008 and 20 September 2008. The flavours implicated are Ready Salted, Cheese and Onion, Salt and Vinegar, Prawn Cocktail, Worcester Sauce, BBQ Rib.
