The voluntary recall is being issued as part of sunflower kernel supplier SunOpta’s ongoing national recall for the potential presence of Listeria monocytogenes. General Mills has not received any direct consumer reports of confirmed illnesses related to the supplier issue.
The four flavors of Nature Valley bars that are part of the recall were distributed to retailers throughout the United States. Consumers are asked to check their pantries and dispose of the products affected by the recall, regardless of when they were purchased or what date is on the package.

The recall only affects four flavors of Nature Valley’s nearly 40 different products. Nature Valley’s other products are not affected by the recall.
“We know this is inconvenient for consumers who love these four flavors,” said Anton Vincent, president of General Mills Snacks Division in a release on the U.S. Food and Drug Administration website. “We promise they will return as soon as it is safe to do so.”
