General Mills Recalls Nature Valley Bars Over Fear of Listeria

June 27, 2016 Updated: June 27, 2016

General Mills is recalling four flavors of Nature Valley bars over possible Listeria contamination, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced on June 24.

There have been no reports of illnesses yet, General Mills said when it first announced the recall on June 2.

The company is recalling the products following its sunflower kernel supplier SunOpta’s ongoing national recall over possible presence of Listeria monocytogenes.

“We know this is inconvenient for consumers who love these four flavors,” said Anton Vincent, President of General Mills Snacks Division.   

“We promise they will return as soon as it is safe to do so,” he added.

The snack bars have been distributed nationwide.

General Mills is asking people to throw away the items, regardless of the expiration date.

Consumers can call 1-866-896-4365 for a replacement of the recalled products they have purchased.
