CLIF Bar & Co. is recalling three flavors of granola bars — two marketed as children’s products — because of undeclared nuts and consumer complaints about allergic reactions.
The product labels do not declare the presence of peanuts or tree nuts, but the CLIF Builder’s bars and CLIF Kid Zbars may contain peanuts, almonds, Brazil nuts, cashews, hazelnuts, macadamia nuts, pecans, walnuts or coconuts, according to the recall notice posted Wednesday on the Food and Drug Administration’s website.
Retailers Trader Joe’s and Stop & Shop posted their own recall notices for the Clif Bar & Co. products. All of the recall notices warn that people with allergies or sensitivities to peanuts or tree nuts should not eat the recalled bars.
“People with an allergy to peanuts and these specific tree nuts run the risk of a serious or life-threatening allergic reaction. The company is strongly advising consumers who have peanut and these specific tree nut allergies not to consume these bars,” according to the recall notice on the FDA website.
“The affected products are sold in retail stores and online throughout the U.S.”
