Giant pulls recalled CLIF bars from shelves
Giant Food Stores has removed several flavors of the popular CLIF Bar products over mislabeling concerns.
The bars, known for their organic protein, have been recalled by manufacturer Clif Bar & Co. after failing to mention that some brands of the bars contain allergens such as peanuts, almonds, macadamia nuts, pecans, walnuts, cashews, hazelnuts and coconut, according to a news release.
While those with no nut allergies are safe to consume the recalled products, Giant has removed the products from its shelves as a precaution.
Tree nut allergies pose the risk of a life-threatening reaction for those who consume traces of the nuts, according to the release.
