General Mills Recalling Only Two Products

    Recall is Limited to Two Flavors of Snack Bars

    No Other General Mills Products are Involved

    General Mills announced a voluntary recall of LÄRABAR Peanut Butter Cookie flavor snack bars and JamFrakas Peanut Butter Blisscrisp flavor snack bars because peanut butter in the products was sourced from Peanut Corporation of America, and may be contaminated with salmonella.

    No illnesses have been reported in connection with LÄRABAR or JamFrakas products, and no other types, varieties or flavors of LÄRABAR or JamFrakas products are being recalled.

    No other General Mills products are involved or impacted.

    Peanut butter produced by Peanut Corporation of America (PCA) has been implicated in an outbreak of salmonella. As the scope of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) investigation into this outbreak expanded this weekend, Peanut Corporation of America expanded its recall to additional lot codes of peanut butter. PCA supplied peanut butter to one of General Mills’ suppliers, including some lots that were part of the expanded recall, prompting General Mills to issue its own voluntary national Class I recall of the two LÄRABAR and JamFrakas products potentially involved.

    LÄRABAR Peanut Butter Cookie flavor snack bars and JamFrakas Peanut Butter Blisscrisp flavor snack bars are distributed nationally under the LÄRABAR and JamFrakas brands, and are sold primarily as individual bars in grocery and specialty retail stores.

General Mills is NOT recalling any of their cereal products including Reese’s Puffs or Peanut Butter Cookie Crisp. Those products have been determined by the company to have not been possible contaminated by the “industrial peanut butter” in question.

Kelloggs has recalled 16 products, but again no cereal products are on the list.

General Mills Issues Voluntary Recall of LÄRABAR and JamFrakas Peanut Butter Snack Bars

    General Mills Issues Voluntary Recall of LÄRABAR and JamFrakas Peanut Butter Snack Bars

    General Mills Inc. and grocers Kroger Co., Safeway Inc. and Meijer Inc. have joined the growing list of food companies and retailers pulling items with peanut butter amid a salmonella outbreak that has killed at least six people and sickened more than 470 others in 43 states.

    The Food and Drug Administration has traced the outbreak to a Georgia plant owned by Peanut Corporation of America, which manufactures peanut butter and peanut paste for distribution to institutions and food companies.

    The FDA has created a searchable list of recalled products and brands on the agency’s Web site. Salmonella, a bacteria, is the most common cause of food poisoning in the U.S., causing diarrhea, cramping and fever.
