Clif Bars Recalled Due to Listeria Risk

On June 2, 2016, Clif Bar & Company issued a recall of certain energy and trail mix bars because they contain sunflower kernels which have the potential to be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes. 

Listeria monocytogenes is an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. In women who are pregnant, Listeria monocytogenes can cause miscarriage and stillbirths. Infection with Listeria monocytogenes can cause symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea.
