NEW YORK – Granola bars from Quaker Oats are being recalled because they contain sunflower kernels that may be contaminated with listeria, officials said this week.

The Quaker Oats Company said they are recalling Quaker Quinoa Granola Bars out of an “abundance of caution to protect public health.”

Most of the affected bars didn’t make it to stores, but the following were distributed to retailers nationwide:

  • 6.1 ounce boxes of Quaker Quinoa Granola Bars Chocolate Nut Medley with UPC code 30000 32241 and Best Before Dates of: 10/16/2016, 10/17/2016
  • 6.1 ounce boxes of Quaker Quinoa Granola Bars Yogurt, Fruit & Nut with UPC 30000 32243 and Best

No other Quaker products are included in the recall at this time and there have been no reported illnesses, the company said.

Customers who have the recalled bars are told to either throw them away or return them to the store for a full refund. Questions can be referred to 800-856-5781.
