Reason for Recall:

Lovin Oven, LLC of Irwindale, Calif. is voluntarily recalling certain Health Valley Organic Granola Bars because they have the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella. The bars contain organic toasted soy grits supplied by Thumb Oilseed Producers Cooperative of Ubly, Mich. No illnesses have been reported in connection with the recalled bars, and no other types of Health Valley brand bars are being recalled. Salmonella is an organism that can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Healthy persons infected with Salmonella often experience fever, diarrhea (which may be bloody), nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain. In rare circumstances, infection with Salmonella can result in the organism getting into the bloodstream and producing more severe illnesses such as arterial infections (i.e., infected aneurysms), endocarditis and arthritis.

Those who have purchased any products included in this recall are urged to return them to the store of purchase for a full refund.

Consumers with questions or concerns about the recall may call 1-800-423-4846 (6 a.m. – 4 p.m. PST). Consumers with questions or concerns about their health should contact their doctor.
