ProBar Meal Bars Recall

July 12, 2019


PROBAR LLC of Salt Lake City, UT has initiated a recall of select flavors and lots of Meal® bars, including Chocolate Coconut, Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip, Original Trail Mix, Wholeberry Blast and Superfood Slam due to the possible presence of undeclared milk and soy allergens. People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to milk or soy may run the risk of a serious or life threatening allergic reaction if they consume the affected products. No other PROBAR® products are affected.

This recall involves select Meal® bar flavors in 3oz. packages distributed nationwide and Canada to retail stores and online. Lot Codes and expiration dates for individual bars are printed on the back of each wrapper.

PROBAR learned of the issue after receiving a complaint of an allergic reaction in a consumer after eating a PROBAR: MEAL Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip bar. Our investigation determined that an ingredient potentially contained milk and soy. To date, PROBAR has received this one report of illness.

If you have any of the products listed below, they should be thrown away or returned to your local Big Y for a full refund.
