What’s the Problem?
March 27, 2017 – According to an FDA Recall Notice issued Friday, the recalled Yogurt Peanut Crunch Bars have a brand name 20/20 Life Styles, lot code B.B. 22JUL17 (means best by July 22, 2017), net weight 2 oz., UPC Code 78571 00052.
Pro Sports Club initiated the recall after the company was warned that the bars might contain ingredients related to the larger recall of I.M. Healthy SoyNut Butter.
“E. coli O157:H7 causes a diarrheal illness often with bloody stools,” FDA said. “Although most healthy adults can recover completely within a week, some people can develop a form of kidney failure called Hemolytic Uremic Syndrome (HUS).”
Consumers who purchased any protein bars affected by this recall are urged to discard them immediately or return them to the place of purchase for a refund. To date, no illnesses have been reported in connection with this recall.
