The recent recalls involving peanuts and peanut products from Sunland have me concerned. I eat a lot of peanut products – peanut butter, granola with peanuts, protein bars. The products from Sunland are being recalled due to possible contamination with Salmonella. Salmonella is a common bacterial infection that affects the GI tract and can be serious in those with fragile immune systems. I wanted to make sure I shared the latest information I just read this morning regarding Crunch thinkThin bars and the peanut recall.
The recall does not involve the core line of thinkThin bars, but only the Crunch line. More information from thinkThin:
