Macadamia Nut Allergy Alert and Voluntary Recall of 15-Count Boxes of Chocolate Chunk LUNA® Bars Due to Package Mislabeling
EMERYVILLE, Calif. --(Business Wire)--
Clif Bar & Company is initiating a voluntary recall today of a small
amount of 15-count boxes of Chocolate Chunk LUNA® Bars that were shipped
to limited stores nationwide. These 15-count boxes include Chocolate
Chunk LUNA Bars made with macadamia nut butter, but the wrappers do not
include macadamia nuts in the ingredient list or allergen statement. The
wrappers do contain advisory allergen labeling, which states that the
product may contain traces of other tree nuts. Clif Bar & Company is
taking this precautionary safety step for people who are allergic to
macadamia nuts. People with an allergy to macadamia nuts run the risk of
a serious or life-threatening allergic reaction.
