RxBar Recall - Expanded
January 16th, 2019
RXBAR is recalling certain varieties of bars because they may contain undeclared peanuts. People who have peanut allergies run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume this product.
Varieties being recalled are: Apple Cinnamon, Blueberry, Chocolate Chip, Chocolate Hazelnut, Chocolate Sea Salt, Coconut Chocolate, Coffee Chocolate, Mango Pineapple, Maple Sea Salt, Mint Chocolate, Mixed Berry and Pumpkin Spice.
No other RXBAR flavors or RXBAR products are affected by the recall.
RXBAR identified the potential for peanut in two varieties – Chocolate Sea Salt and Coconut Chocolate – in December and initiated a recall of those varieties. RXBAR is expanding the recall after recently receiving consumer complaints regarding allergic reactions to additional varieties.
The issue stems from a specific ingredient supplied by a third party. RXBAR immediately changed suppliers for this ingredient when the issue arose.
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.
The following products are sold at Big Y:
