Frito-Lay, Inc. Key Developments

Frito-Lay Issues a Voluntary Recall of Several Varieties of Rold Gold Pretzels

Frito-Lay issued a voluntary recall of several varieties of Rold Gold pretzels that can be found in stores and vending machines. The move follows Hostess's voluntary recall last week of 710,000 cases of snack cakes and doughnuts. The recalled products include Ding Dongs, Zingers and different flavors of snack doughnuts. The companies cite supplier Grain Craft's recall of a certain type of flour that included peanut residue. The Food and Drug Administration says Grain Craft only sells to other companies and not to consumers. A list of other products recalled over the flour can be found on the FDA's website.

Frito-Lay Inc. Expands Distribution Footprint in Southwest Charlotte

Frito-Lay Inc. has grown its local distribution space to include a new facility off Westinghouse Boulevard in southwest Charlotte. The Plano, Texas-based snack-food maker has signed on for 112,000 square feet at Ridge Creek Distribution Center. That industrial building at 10230 Ridge Creek Drive contains nearly 109,000 square feet of warehouse space and 6,080 square feet of office space. Ridge Creek is a master-planned industrial park developed by Childress Klein in two phases. Exeter Property Group owns the building where Frito-Lay is leasing space. That Pennsylvania-based firm purchased the distribution building in 2013 for $13.3 million. Childress Klein is developing the second phase, Ridge Creek West, on a 63-acre site that contains two industrial buildings, called Ridge Creek West I and Ridge Creek West II. That park has a buildout estimation of nearly 900,000 square feet.
