RX Bar Recall
RX Bar Recall
Subject: Urgent: RXBAR Limited Recall - Action Required
We are issuing a recall of Chocolate Sea Salt and Coconut Chocolate RXBARs from a six-day production run in August. Though most of this product has likely sold through and been consumed, we wanted to inform you of this as soon as possible as our records show you have impacted product. We also wanted to reassure you that these products include an advisory on the package label relating to peanuts that notes the bars are “Manufactured in a facility that also processes peanuts, tree nuts, eggs, milk, soy, and wheat,” so those most allergic would likely not purchase or consume these bars.
RXBAR identified the potential for trace amounts of undeclared peanut in Chocolate Sea Salt and Coconut Chocolate varieties with “best by” dates between June 10, 2019 and June 17, 2019. Our investigation indicates the issue arose at an ingredient supplier. Attached and below please find the details. Food safety and quality are of the utmost importance to us, and we are taking proactive measures to ensure we remedy this situation. We sincerely apologize for this inconvenience.
No other RXBAR flavors or RXBAR products are affected by the recall. We also want to let you know there have been no hospitalizations reported and we are taking this action out of an abundance of caution.
While the product is safe to consume for those who do not have a peanut allergy, we ask that you review your RXBAR inventory and discard the below Chocolate Sea Salt and Coconut Chocolate RXBARs.
