Protein Bars Recalled Due to Listeria Risk

On July 21, 2017, Bhu Foods recalled a number of their products after their organic sunflower seeds, distributed by Hudson Valley Foods, Inc., were potentially contaminated with Listeria monoocytogenes.

Infection with Listeria monocytogenes can cause symptoms like short-term fever, headache, nausea, and diarrhea in healthy adults but can be fatal in those with weakened immune systems - children and the elderly - and can lead to miscarriages in pregnant women.

  • Organic Vegan Protein - Peanut Butter + Chocolate Chip. Lot Code: 13917
  • Organic Vegan Protein - Superfood Chocolate Chip + Fudge Brownie Batter. Lot Code: 13817 and 15417
  • Organic Vegan Protein - Peanut Butter + White Chocolate. Lot Code: 15317 and 15417
