NoGii is voluntarily recalling its Nuts About Berries Paleo Bars because it has the potential to be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes, an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Although healthy individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea, listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.
The company has received no reports of illness to date but is taking this action as part of its commitment to the health and safety of the people who eat its foods.
The Nuts About Berries Paleo Bar contains sunflower seeds that were recalled by our supplier, SunOpta, due to the potential to be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes.
