Wilmington, Delaware-based Wellness Natural USA Inc. is recalling a single lot of its SimplyProtein Peanut Butter Chocolate Crispy Bar citing undeclared cashews, a known allergen, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration said.
The product comes in a 15-count variety pack which includes 5 Peanut Butter Chocolate Crispy Bars, and contains two other flavors. The product is marked with a Best Before date of 05 Jan 2024 and Lot TN3005A on the bar wrapper (UPC 6 86207 80906 8) / Lot TN3005 (UPC 6 86207 00914 7) on the outside carton.
The recalled products were distributed in the United States in limited Costco stores in Arkansas, California, Washington DC, Kansas, Maryland, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Texas and Virginia.
The recall does not apply to any other lots or varieties of SimplyProtein products, including the other two flavors contained in the 15-count variety pack.
The agency noted that the product may have the potential to contain trace levels of undeclared cashew. People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to cashew may get a serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume these products.
The recall was initiated due to a consumer complaint, which is the only reported reaction to date. The cause of the contamination is being investigated.
Consumers who have purchased the impacted lot and have a sensitivity to cashew are asked to return them to Costco for a full refund.
The product and the two other flavors in the carton, which declare cashew as an allergen, are safe to consume for people who do not a have a sensitivity to cashew.
