bumble bar gluen free snackOctober 24, 2012 – Bumble Bar is recalling certain lots of Gluten Free Café™ Chocolate Sesame Bars and Gluten Free Café™ Cinnamon Sesame Bars associated with Sunland Inc. peanut products, because they have the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella, an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infection in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems.  Healthy persons infected with Salmonella often experience fever, diarrhea (which may be bloody), nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain.  Consumers with the above symptoms should consult their physician.

While no illnesses associated with any of these products have been reported to date, as part our commitment to the safety and quality of our products we are issuing a voluntary recall, which includes expired product.

The ‘Best Buy’ date is located on the lower left panel of the 12-pack retail box and is also located on the back film of each individual bar.  The specific product and lot codes are as follows:
