Announcement

eBars LLC of Franklin, Tenn. is issuing a voluntary recall on its line of products that may contain undeclared peanut and/or almond allergens.

The “Use By” dates showing between June 21, 2017 through July 18, 2018 including: MAN, WOMAN, TRIM Cocoa Raspberry, TRIM Cocoa Almond, RUN Cocoa Almond, RUN Cocoa Raspberry, FOCUS Chocolate Peanut, FOCUS 4 KIDS, GOLF Chocolate Almond, GOLF Cocoa Raspberry, HEAL Chocolate Peanut, FIT Organic Peanut Butter Chocolate Raspberry.

No illnesses, reactions or events have been reported to date.

As part of its quality control review process, eBars discovered that MAN, WOMAN, TRIM, RUN Cocoa Raspberry, RUN Cocoa Almond, GOLF Cocoa Almond, GOLF Cocoa Raspberry, referenced above may contain undisclosed peanut allergens. Furthermore, all the LOT#’s of FOCUS Chocolate Peanut, HEAL Chocolate Peanut, FIT Organic Peanut Butter Chocolate Raspberry, may contain undisclosed almond. Additionally, the FOCUS 4 Kids Bars may contain undisclosed peanut and/or almond. People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to these specific allergens run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume these products.

The bars listed above were distributed through Whole Foods in Tennessee, Alabama, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Georgia, and through Kroger in Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Mississippi, Texas, West Virginia, Michigan, Indiana, Tennessee, Alabama, Kentucky, Ohio, and Georgia. They were also distributed nationwide through ebars.com website.

The bars in question are individually packaged in eBars branded foil wrappers.

The expanded recall was initiated after eBars’ quality control team discovered this issue at their manufacturing facility. Subsequent investigation indicates the problem may have arisen from a supplier whose raw ingredients tested positive for amounts of undeclared peanut and/or almonds. Consumers who are affected by this recall are urged to return the products to eBars or to the store in which they purchased the products, for a full refund. Consumers with questions may contact the company Monday – Friday, 9am – 5pm CST, at 1-888-231-3227 or info@ebars.com.
