MISSISSAUGA, ON, Nov. 24 /CNW/ - Quaker Canada, a division of PepsiCo Foods Canada, has initiated a voluntary recall of its 14 count Quaker Chewy Granola Bars Value Pack cartons that may have been mis-labeled.  No other packages of Quaker bars or Quaker products are affected.

Consumers who have purchased 14 count Quaker Chewy Granola Bars Value Pack cartons with a UPC Bar Code 55577 10742 should inspect the contents of the carton to ensure it contains the correct product - Chewy Chocolate Chip and Chewy S'mores bars.

If the carton contains Dipps Chocolate Chip and Dipps Caramel Nut bars and a consumer has a peanut or tree nut allergy, they should return it to the retailer where it was purchased for a refund. There is no health risk associated with handling the mis-labeled carton for disposal or return, however this product should not be consumed by those in a peanut or tree nut-allergic household.  

There have been only two reports of 14 count Quaker Chewy Granola Bars Value Pack cartons containing Quaker Dipps Chocolate Chip and Dipps Caramel Nut bars; however, the company is taking this voluntary action as a precautionary measure because the outside packaging erroneously states that the boxes should contain Chewy Chocolate Chip and Chewy S'mores bars, both of which are made in a peanut free facility.

No illnesses have been reported in connection with this product mis-labeling and the company has contacted Anaphylaxis Canada to ensure its members are notified.

Consumers with questions may contact Quaker Canada by calling the toll-free hotline at 1-800-267-6287.

PepsiCo Foods Canada is comprised of Frito Lay Canada and Quaker.  For more information, please visit www.pepsico.ca or www.quakeroats.ca.
