FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - September 26, 2012 - General Mills is voluntarily recalling a single day's production of Almond Nature Valley Sweet & Salty Nut Granola Bars because of a labeling issue. Product produced on this date may have been packaged incorrectly, and may contain allergens not listed on the box's ingredient label, specifically peanuts.
A production error resulted in a limited number of properly labeled, individually wrapped Peanut Nature Valley Sweet & Salty Nut Granola Bar packages being inserted into 6-count boxes labeled as Almond Nature Valley Sweet & Salty Nut Granola Bars.
The Almond Nature Valley Sweet & Salty Nut Granola Bars carton does contain an allergen statement indicating the product "may contain peanuts."
There have been no reports of allergic reactions or illnesses associated with this product.
This voluntary recall includes only 6-count boxes of Almond Nature Valley Sweet & Salty Nut Granola Bars with one Better if Used By date printed on the top of the box:
No other varieties or production dates of Nature Valley products are affected by this recall.
Consumers allergic to peanuts, or who are unsure of whether they are allergic to peanuts, should not consume Almond Nature Valley Sweet & Salty Nut Granola Bar products from 6-count boxes bearing the Better if Used By date 26FEB2013 on the top of the box, and should contact General Mills for replacement or a full refund.
