If You Have These Breakfast Bars, Throw Them Out Now
One type of Bobo's breakfast bars is the subject of a new recall because they could contain undeclared peanuts, according to a notice from the company's CEO TJ McIntyre published on the FDA's website.
The Maple Pecan Oat Bars were distributed and sold at grocery stores and retail locations nationwide, as well as on the Bobo's website as a single, 3oz bar or in a box of 12. "The recall was initiated after it was discovered that product containing peanuts was distributed in packaging that did not reveal the presence of peanuts on the ingredient deck," McIntyre says in the notice. "No other Bobo's product with this best buy date was impacted." (Related: The 7 Healthiest Foods to Eat Right Now.)
The breakfast bars come in clear and red plastic packaging. They have a lot code of 0L30112B, a Best By date of 7/30/21 or 7/31/21, and a UPC code of 829262000210.
No illnesses have been reported. However, anyone with an allergy or sensitivity to these nuts who eats the bars could have a serious or life-threatening allergic reaction.
"Consumers who have purchased the affected lot should return the product to where it was purchased to request an exchange or full refund if there is an allergy concern," McIntyre says. "Affected product should then be discarded in a secure place and not consumed."
