Abbott Nutrition Announces Voluntary Recall of ZonePerfect® Chocolate Caramel Cluster Bars, Champions™ Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars and Glucerna® Chocolate Peanut Bars
Columbus, Ohio — Abbott Nutrition today announced that it is initiating a precautionary, voluntary recall of ZonePerfect® Chocolate Caramel Cluster bars, Champions™ Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars by EAS® and Glucerna® Chocolate Peanut bars, in connection with the expanded recall of peanut ingredients manufactured by Peanut Corporation of America (PCA). No other Glucerna or EAS products are affected.
Abbott Nutrition is taking this action as a precautionary measure because peanut granules in these bars were sourced from the PCA plant in Plainview, Texas. Since Abbott Nutrition conducts extensive quality testing prior to distribution, the company has no reason to believe there is a health or safety issue with the impacted bars.
This action completes Abbott Nutrition’s recall of all products containing ingredients from PCA. Abbott Nutrition no longer uses PCA as a supplier for any ingredients.
The impacted bars were distributed nationally through retail stores and direct delivery. Abbott is working with retail partners to remove the specified products from retail store shelves. Consumers who have purchased the recalled products are urged to destroy them. Consumers with questions should contact Abbott Nutrition Consumer Relations at (800) 986-8884, Monday through Friday, between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 5 p.m. Eastern time.
Abbott Nutrition previously announced a recall of certain other nutrition bars – ZonePerfect Chocolate Peanut Butter bars, ZonePerfect Peanut Toffee bars, and NutriPals Peanut Butter Chocolate bars – that contained other peanut ingredients supplied by the PCA plant in Blakely, Ga. No other Abbott Nutrition products are being recalled.
Products impacted by today’s announcement are as follows:
* ZonePerfect Chocolate Caramel Cluster bars, all sizes and quantities
* Glucerna Chocolate Peanut bars, all sizes and quantities
* Champions Chocolate Peanut Butter Bar by EAS, 40 gram size
Products subject to our previous announcement on Jan. 19 are as follows:
