Nutrition Bars Recalled Due to Potential Salmonella Contamination

On December 19, 2014, Perfect Bar & Company issued a recall of certain lots of Peanut Butter and Cranberry Crunch Nutrition Bars because they have 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.

  • Flavor: Peanut Butter (2.5 oz.), Lot Code: 02814, Expiration Date: 9-2-15, UPC:8-55569-00302-9
