Built Brand Protein Bar Recalled Due to E. Coli Concern

On June 10, 2022, Built Brands, LLC. Issued a recall of 4,146 Banana Cream Pie Puffs protein bars after routine testing discovered potential contamination with E. coli (Escherichia coli).

E. coli is a bacterium that can cause severe stomach cramps, watery or bloody diarrhea, vomiting, nausea, and headache. While most people recover within a week, young children, older adults, and people with weakened immune systems are more likely to get sick from E. coli and their symptoms may be more severe.

The recalled bars were distributed nationwide to 1,049 potential customers through mail orders. The product comes in a 40-gram package (see product images) and the affected Lot # D22151011 can be identified on the outside of the wrapper.

Consumers who have purchased the product are urged to contact the company for a full refund or replacement.

See ConsumerLab’s Reviews of Nutrition Bars and Protein Powders, Shakes and Drinks for more information and tests of related products.
