The Rhode Island Department of Health (RIDOH) is advising consumers that RXBAR is recalling certain varieties of bars because they may contain undeclared peanuts. People who have peanut allergies run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reactions if they consume this product.
Varieties being recalled are:
- RXBAR: Apple Cinnamon, Blueberry, Chocolate Chip, Chocolate Hazelnut, Chocolate Sea Salt, Coconut Chocolate, Coffee Chocolate, Mango Pineapple, Maple Sea Salt, Mint Chocolate, Mixed Berry, Pumpkin Spice - RXBAR Kids: Apple Cinnamon Raisin, Berry Blast, Chocolate Chip
UPC codes for all recalled products are available online (see link below). No other RXBAR flavors or RXBAR products are affected by the recall.
RXBAR identified the potential for peanut in two varieties – Chocolate Sea Salt and Coconut Chocolate – in December and initiated a recall of those varieties. The recall is being expanded out of an abundance of caution after recent consumer reports regarding allergic reactions to additional varieties.
People who have purchased affected product and who have peanut allergies should discard the product and contact their local retailer or RXBAR for replacement or a full refund. Consumers can contact the RXBAR consumer service team at firstname.lastname@example.org or 1-312- 624-8200.
