Contamination is a huge threat in today’s food supply. The manufacturing process of today involves food touching many surfaces which are not cleaned very often if at all. Watching out for recalled foods is a must nowadays. A new warning seems to pop up every now again, and if you don’t catch it, it could cost you big time. Nature Valley bars appear to be the latest recalled food by General Mills, as there are contamination concerns.
Do you have any of the following products? These are the recalls:
Nature Valley Protein Chewy Bar with Honey, Peanut & Almond with Pumpkin Seeds. There are five bars in this package, with a UPC code of 000-16000-47196. Nature Valley Protein Chewy Bar, Peanut, Almond & Dark Chocolate. Again, there are five bars in this package with a UPC code of 000-16000-45724. Nature Valley Simple Nut Bar with Almond, Cashew & Sea Salt. This package comes in a four count, and a twenty five count. The 4 count has a UPC code of 000-16000-46474 and the 25 count has a UPC code of 000-16000-41301. Nature Valley Simple Nut Bar – Roasted Peanut & Honey, which come in a four count and a sixteen count. The four count has a UPC code of 000-16000-46475 and the 16 count has a UPC of 000-16000-41308.
These are the recalled bars and it’s advised to throw them away. No matter what you paid, they are better off in the garbage than in your system. Turns out the sunflower seeds have the potential presence of Listeria monocytogenes in their seeds. General Mills decided not to risk anything and instead put the word out right away. Listeria requires medical attention right away, so it doesn’t spread.
Here are common symptoms:
Muscle aches, diarrhea, fever, and a weakened immune system.
