Nutrition Bars Recalled Due to Salmonella Risk

On July 25, 2014, GoMacro issued a recall of two flavors of MACROBARS nutrition bars because they contain carob powder which has the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella.

Salmonella is an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Salmonella infection can produce fever, diarrhea (which may be bloody), nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain. In rare circumstances, infection with Salmonella can result in the organism getting into the bloodstream and producing more severe illnesses such as arterial infections (i.e., infected aneurysms), endocarditis and arthritis.

Recalled MACROBARS were distributed nationally and internationally in retail stores, and through mail order and direct delivery. They can be identified by the following information:

  • Almond Butter + Carbo MACROBARS, Lot # 1634, Expiration Date 10 Mar 15
  • Almond Butter + Carbo MACROBARS, Lot # 1645, Expiration Date 18 Mar 15
  • Sunflower + Chocolate MACROBARS, Lot # 1646, Expiration Date 18 Mar 15
