Banana chips are a great, fun snack to bring along on your next hiking trip, providing a rush of sugar and vitamins when you really need to bang out a couple more kilometers.

But you know what’s not a great hiking companion? Diarrhea, fever and vomiting come to mind!

Fréttablaðið reports that salmonella was found in banana chips sold at the popular discount store, Flying Tiger.

According to Fréttablaðið, Flying Tiger is in contact with customers that may have potentially consumed the chips.

Those who may have purchased the chips are asked to either dispose of them or return them to the store of purchase.

For those not in the know, salmonella is pretty bad news. If you think there’s any chance you have it, probably stop reading this article and get yourself checked out!
