The recall was initiated as a precautionary measure after a small piece of yellow plastic was discovered by a consumer. No illness or injury has been reported.

The product is available in 9.5 oz. boxes containing 6 bars per box. The date code can be found printed in white on the top of the box. The “best by” date of May 24, 2018 is the only date code affected by the recall.
