Here we go again with another recall from another major company due to possible listeria contamination. This time, it's General Mills with a recall of some of their Nature Valley granola bars. I was a bit concerned because my pantry has a couple of boxes of the Nature Valley Peanut, Almond & Dark Chocolate bars (as pictured)--however--mine aren't "protein" bars and the UPC code is totally different...whew!

According to the FDA, here's the list of recalled bars:

  • Nature Valley Simple Nut Bar Almond, Cashew & Sea Salt packaged in four-count boxes with the UPC number 000-16000-46474; and
  • Nature Valley Simple Nut Bar Roasted Peanut & Honey packaged in 16-count boxes with the UPC number 000-16000-41308;
  • Nature Valley Simple Nut Bar Roasted Peanut & Honey packaged in four-count boxes with the UPC number 000-16000-46475;
  • Nature Valley Protein Chewy Bar-Peanut, Almond & Dark Chocolate packaged in five-count boxes with the UPC number 000-16000-45724;
  • Nature Valley Protein Chewy Bar Honey, Peanut & Almond with Pumpkin Seeds, packaged in five-count boxes with the UPC number 000-16000-47196;
  • Nature Valley Simple Nut Bar Almond, Cashew & Sea Salt packaged in 25-count boxes with the UPC number 000-16000-41301.
