Perfect Bar & Company recalls certain nutrition bars sold in Georgia due to potential health risk

Agriculture Commissioner Gary W. Black is alerting Georgians to the recall of certain Perfect Bar & Company nutrition bars because the products have the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella. Georgia Department of Agriculture inspectors will be checking retail stores and food warehouses to make sure the recalled product is removed from sale. Here is the recall announcement from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA):

After Perfect Bar’s routine product testing, the company is issuing a nationwide recall of specific lot numbers of its Peanut Butter and Cranberry Crunch flavor recipes due to potential contamination of Salmonella.

Consumers who have any products associated with this recall should dispose of them immediately.

While no illnesses to date have been associated with any of the recalled products, Salmonella bacteria 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, nausea, vomiting and abdominal cramps. Consumers with the above symptoms should consult their physician.

Perfect Bar’s recalled Peanut Butter and Cranberry Crunch products have packaging and/or wrappers with the expiration date and lot codes listed below. The recalled product has reached the distributor, retail and end user level.
