(WTHR) — RXBAR is voluntarily recalling certain varieties of bars because they may contain undeclared peanuts.

If you or your child have peanut allergies, you run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if you eat one of the bars.

Varieties being recalled for adults and kids include:

  • RXBAR: Apple Cinnamon, Blueberry, Chocolate Chip, Chocolate Hazelnut, Chocolate Sea Salt, Coconut Chocolate, Coffee Chocolate, Mango Pineapple, Maple Sea Salt, Mint Chocolate, Mixed Berry, Pumpkin Spice
  • RXBAR Kids: Apple Cinnamon Raisin, Berry Blast, Chocolate Chip

It was back in December that RXBAR first found the potential for peanut in two varieties – Chocolate Sea Salt and Coconut Chocolate.

Now the company is expanding the recall because of people reporting allergic reactions in additional varieties of the bars.

RXBAR found that the issue came from an ingredient provided to the company for its bars and so it has changed suppliers.

If you purchased an affected product and have peanut allergies, you should discard it and contact you local retailer or RXBAR for a replacement or a full refund.

You can contact the RXBAR consumer service team at info@rxbar.com or 1-312- 624-8200 Monday through Friday, 8:30am CT - 6pm CT and Saturday and Sunday 10am CT - 1pm CT.
