The Kashi Company is voluntarily recalling some snack bars and granola sold in the U.S. over concerns the products may contain sunflower seeds contaminated with listeria.
The two affected products are the Trail Mix flavor of Kashi Chewy Granola Bars and the Cinnamon + Sunflower Butter flavor of Bear Naked Soft Baked Granola.
The company said the products contain sunflower seed ingredients distributed by SunOpta, a Minnesota-based company that has recalled dozens of products sold around the country.
The ingredients may contain listeria monocytogenes, bacteria that can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, the elderly and other people with weakened immune systems. Pregnant women are also at risk.
There were no reports of illness as of May 31, according to Kashi. No other Kashi or Bear Naked products are impacted by the recall, the company said.
Those who purchased the recalled products should discard them and contact Kashi for a full refund. The consumer hotline is 1-877-747-2467.
