Unlisted peanuts causes granola bar recall

Commissioner of Agriculture Tommy Irvin is alerting consumers with an allergy or sensitivity to peanuts to the recall of some Market Pantry Chocolate Chip Chewy Granola bars sold at Target stores in 35 states, including Georgia.

LeClerc Foods of Montgomery, Pa., has recalled a single lot of Market Pantry Chocolate Chip Chewy Granola Bar packages with UPC Code 85239 20124 and a “Best By” date of 18JAN2010.

Some of the retail units also may contain Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Bars and S’more Bars. As a result the ingredient statement on the retail package does not include peanuts. People who have allergies to peanuts run the risk of serious or life threatening allergic reactions if they consume this product.

Individual bars within the retail package have the correct variety names on the wrappers.

The product is available in 15.2 oz. boxes containing 18 bars per box and the date code is found printed in white on the right side of the box.

This product also was shipped to other states in the southeast, including Alabama, Florida and South Carolina.
