Clif Bar announced a voluntary recall of 14 American and four Canadian products on Monday because the peanut butter in those products was sourced, for a limited period of time, from the Peanut Corporation of America (PCA), a manufacturer and supplier of peanut butter.
“PCA is under investigation by the US Food and Drug Administration for a recent Salmonella outbreak thought to be caused by tainted peanut butter,” read a statement on Clif Bar’s website. “In light of this investigation, and with an abundance of caution, Clif Bar & Company has enacted a voluntary recall. We take the health and safety of our consumers very seriously.”
Affected products include some CLIF Bars, CLIF Builder’s Bars, CLIF MOJO bars, CLIF Kid Organic ZBaRs and LUNA Bars. See the Clif bar website, www.clifbar.com/voluntary-recall/, for specific information about affected products based on best by and sell by dates.
