Around 100 Snack Foods Have Been Recalled Over Listeria Concerns
Snackers, beware: around 100 packaged snacks have been recalled due to food safety concerns.
All but two of the products are made by TreeHouse Foods Inc. of Oak Brook, Ill., according to trade publication Food Safety News. The other two are manufactured by Canadian company SunOpta Inc., which has US headquarters in Minnesota. The products are being recalled due to concerns of a listeria infection.
You can see the full list of TreeHouse products recalled here, but a few of the highlights include nut brand Nature’s Harvest, protein bars from grocery store Meijer, and fruit and nut bars from Great Value, the Walmart store brand.
This issue here is with the sunflowers used to produce the products. TreeHouse said in its statement that the problem was brought to their attention by the sunflower seed provider.
The two affected products from SunOpta are roasted and salted Kernels from Dakota’s Best Biggy’z, and Planter’s brand sunflower kernels.
