Kashi Company is voluntarily recalling Kashi® Trail Mix Chewy Granola Bars and Bear Naked® Soft Baked Granola, Cinnamon + Sunflower Butter in the continental United States because they contain ingredients made from sunflower seeds distributed by our supplier, SunOpta, that have the potential to be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes.
Listeria monocytogenes can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Although healthy individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea, Listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.
The company has received no reports of illness to date but is taking this action as part of its commitment to the health and safety of the people who eat its foods.
No other Kashi or Bear Naked products are impacted by this recall. Kashi products in Canada are not impacted by the recall announced on May 31st in the US. We continue to monitor the situation carefully and will take any action necessary to protect the health and safety of our consumers.
People who have purchased affected product should discard it and contact Kashi for a full refund by calling our consumer hotline at 1-877-747-2467, Monday through Friday, 6 a.m. – 3 p.m. PST.
