Clif Bars recalled because of possible nuts in products

WASHINGTON — Three Clif Bar products are being recalled because of the possible presence of undeclared peanuts and some tree nuts in the products, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration announced Thursday.

“Clif Bar discovered this issue when it received a small number of consumer complaints alleging peanut or tree nut allergic reactions,” the announcement said. “There are no confirmed illnesses associated with this recall.”

Clif Bar & Co. is recalling Clif Builder’s Bar Chocolate Mint flavor, Clif Kid Zbar Protein Chocolate Mint and Clif Kid Zbar Protein Chocolate Chip, along with snack sizes and variety packs.

The announcement has a full list of the package sizes that are affected, along with lot codes.

The bars might contain peanuts and some tree nuts, including hazelnuts, almonds, walnuts, macadamia nuts, Brazil nuts, pecans, cashews and coconuts, according to the announcement.

They are sold in stores and online throughout the United States.

People who do not have nut allergies can safely consume the recalled products. No other Clif Bar products have been affected, the FDA said.

Consumers concerned about allergies can return products to the stores where they were purchased to request an exchange or full refund, the announcement said.

“Affected product should then be discarded in a secure place and not consumed,” according to the announcement.

More information can be found on the Clif Bar website or by calling 866-526-1970.
