Many grocery stores have entire aisles dedicated to healthy food. Organic granola, cereal bars, and crackers are wonderful snack options to stock your kitchen with. However, just because an item hits the shelves, doesn’t mean it’s safe to eat. All food must pass strict standards before being approved for sale, but sometimes things slip through the cracks.
This is where recalls come in, but they tend to fly under the radar. It’s not good PR for a company to loudly announce there’s something wrong with their products, so these recalls are often carried out quietly. What’s the latest product recall you need to know? Check your pantry immediately for Nature Valley brand granola bars.
I’m sure everyone hates to waste food, but these bars are better off in the trash than in your body. These popular snack bars have recently been found to contain Listeria - a bacteria that leads to terrible food poisoning - in their sunflower seeds. Do not eat these bars as they could make you very ill. If you find yourself suffering from diarrhea, headaches, fever, low immune system, and/or general weakness, you may have contracted Listeria and should see a doctor immediately.
While stores are working to get these tainted snacks off the shelves, you might already have a box or two in your home. Check your pantry for the following varieties:
