The FDA recalled Clio Snacks' Strawberry Granola & Greek Yogurt Parfait Bar from New Jersey on March 15. The relocation impacts 581 product cases.
The item was sent to Walmart locations between March 5 and 8. A single-serving box with the UPC 854021008152 and the expiration date 4/30/2023 contains the concerned product.
Lot 048C2023 appears on the bars' wrappers.
The product was recalled due to Listeria monocytogenes contamination, according to the agency's notification.
Clio Snacks found the problem during normal testing at a snack bar factory. The recall affects no other products, the firm said.
"The third-party manufacturer has discontinued manufacturing and Clio has ceased distribution of the concerned product
while the FDA and the business complete their investigation into what caused the incident," the firm stated.
The FDA says that the hazardous bacteria can produce short-term symptoms in healthy people, including high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, stomach discomfort,
and diarrhoea. In young children, the elderly, and immunocompromised people, it can cause "serious and occasionally deadly infections" and miscarriages and stillbirths.
Nonetheless, it recommends buyers to "destroy" the merchandise or return it to the retailer for a full refund. The warning includes a hotline for customers with recall queries.
