Kashi expands recall for possible Listeria contamination in sunflower seeds
Breakfast foods and snacks maker, Kashi Co., has expanded a previously announced recall of a certain granola product because of possible listeria contamination in the sunflower seeds used.
The recall was first announced May 31 and is now adding Kashi granola bar and Bear Naked products to the recall.
Kashi decided to take this action because the sunflower seeds distributed by SunOpta are potentially contaminated with Listeria which can cause serious infections.
No illnesses have been reported.
The products added to the recall are Kashi GoLean Honey Pecan Baklava Bars, 5-count with a UPC code of 18627 10474, and “Best If Used Before” dates of July 21, Aug. 7, Sept. 13, Sept. 22 and Oct. 20, all in 2016; and Bear Naked Soft Baked Granola, Cinnamon + Sunflower Butter, 11 ounce pouch with a UPC code of 84623 10163, and use by dates of Aug. 13, 2016 to Jan. 11, 2017.
Some things that healthy people who contract Listeria can suffer from high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea and abdominal pain and diarrhea for short periods of time.
Kashi said customers who have purchased recalled products should discard them and contact the company for a refund. Additional information is available online at Kashi.com or by calling the company’s consumer hotline at 877-747-2467.
