Kashi announces recall of select snack bars and granola

Kashi Company is expanding its previously announced voluntary recall to include two varieties of Kashi® brand snack bars and two varieties of Bear Naked® granola because they contain ingredients made from sunflower seeds distributed by its supplier, SunOpta, which have the potential to be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes. SunOpta expanded the scope of impacted products after Kashi initially announced its recall in the United States on May 31.

 Listeria monocytogenes can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Although healthy individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea, Listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women. 

The 4 items are listed below.  Additional details can be found at consumeralert.kashi.com.
