FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - MINNEAPOLIS - October 9, 2012 - General Mills today announced a voluntary recall of a limited number of Cascadian Farm Granola Bars containing peanuts.

This voluntary recall includes 6-count boxes of Cascadian Farm Peanut Butter Chip Chewy Granola Bars with the following "Better if Used By" dates printed on the top of the box:
Because this product was produced in February, it may no longer be on store shelves.
