The company is strongly advising consumers not to eat these bars if they have allergies to peanuts or tree nuts including almonds, Brazil nuts, cashews, hazelnuts, macadamia nuts, pecans, walnuts and coconuts. The bars were sold in retail stores and online throughout the U.S.
The bars shouldn’t cause harm to people who are not allergic to peanuts or these specific tree nuts.
Clif Bar discovered the issue after receiving a number of consumer complaints of suffering from peanut or tree nut allergies after consuming the products. The company says that there are no confirmed illnesses associated with the recall.
Consumers with affected products who have allergy concerns should return them to the store of purchase for an exchange or full refund. Any adverse events related to this recall should be reported to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Adverse Event Reporting Program at www.FDA.gov/MedWatch/Report.htm.
