Lovin Oven LLC Voluntarily Recalls Certain Health Valley® Organic Peanut Crunch, Dutch Apple and Wildberry Chewy Granola Bars

 

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – Irwindale, CA, February, 19, 2010 – Lovin Oven, LLC of Irwindale, CA announced that it has taken the precautionary measure of voluntarily recalling certain Health Valley Organic Peanut Crunch, Dutch Apple and Wildberry Chewy Granola Bars because they have the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella. The bars contain organic toasted soy grits supplied by Thumb Oilseed Producers Cooperative of Ubly, MI. No illnesses have been reported in connection with the recalled bars and no other types of Health Valley brand bars are being recalled.

Salmonella is an organism which 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 (which may be bloody), nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain. In rare circumstances, infection with Salmonella can result in the organism getting into the bloodstream and producing more severe illnesses such as arterial infections (i.e., infected aneurysms), endocarditis and arthritis.

The recalled Peanut Crunch, Dutch Apple and Wildberry chewy granola bars are distributed nationally. The only lots affected are:
