Protein Bars Recalled Due to Listeria Risk

On August 2, 2017, Amrita Health Foods recalled several varieties of protein bars due to potential contamination 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.

The recalled protein bars were distributed nationwide through online sales and in retail stores, and can be identified by the following:

  • Amrita Chocolate Maca Bar, 60g (UPC 853009004056)
  • Amrita Dark Chocolate Quinoa, 60g (UPC 853009004438)
  • Amrita Sunflower Seed Butter, 60g (UPC 853009004414)
  • Amrita Chocolate Chip Coconut, 50g (UPC 853009004391)
  • Amrita Mango Coconut, 50g (UPC 853009004018)
  • Amrita Apricot Strawberry, 50g (UPC 853009004056)
  • Amrita Pineapple Chia, 50g (UPC 853009004025)
  • Amrita Apple Cinnamon, 50g (UPC 853009004049)
  • Amrita Cranberry Raisin, 50g (UPC 853009004032)
