Raw Indulgence Announces Nationwide Recall of Raw Revolution Organic Live Food Bars Because They May Contain Metal Fragments
866-498-4671 ext. 419
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE -- Ardsley, NY -- September 14, 2006 -- Raw Indulgence, Ltd. is voluntarily recalling approximately 8000 food bars described below because they may contain metal fragments:
- Raspberry and Chocolate [red wrapper]: Net Wt. 2.2 oz. (64 g), Lot 060907 and UPC 899587000257 (bar); Date Code EXP060907 and UPC 899587000332 (box); AND
- Raisin and Chocolate [purple wrapper]: Net Wt. 2.2 oz. (64g), Lot 060907 and UPC 899587000240 (bar); Date Code EXP060907 and 899587000325 (box).
The company's investigation of several recent complaints has led us to conclude that a single metal washer may have fallen into a mixing vat during production on June 9, 2006, resulting in metal fragments being discovered in some food bars made that day. People who bite into or swallow the metal fragments could possibly be injured. The company believes that only these flavor bars made on that day may potentially contain metal fragments, and therefore is only recalling the bars made on June 9, 2006. No other flavors or other lot numbers of the Raspberry and Chocolate or Raisin and Chocolate flavors are affected by the recall.
The bars were distributed nationwide to distributors and retail stores and possibly through some internet sales.
The Raspberry and Chocolate food bars are packaged in red & black colored wrappers. The Raisin and Chocolate food bars are packaged in purple & black colored wrappers. The bars are sold individually, and there are 12 bars per display box.
No serious injuries were reported, although several consumers reported finding metal fragments, and one consumer bit into a metal fragment in a bar, resulting in minor injury.
The company has advised its distribution network to quarantine the affected products.
Consumers who have purchased the above products are advised not to consume them and to return them to the place of purchase or to Raw Indulgence, Ltd. for a full refund or exchange.
Send affected products to: Raw Indulgence, Ltd. 923 Saw Mill River Road, Suite 170, Ardsley, NY 10502.
