CLIF Bar - Voluntary Recall

My sister just forwarded me this article, so I wanted to post the link and article for all. I know there are a lot of people out there (myself included) that this may affect. Please pass this information along.

Article below is taken straight from the Clif website - link can be found HERE:

Voluntary Recall

On January 19, 2009, we announced a voluntary recall of certain products including CLIF Bar, CLIF Builder’s, CLIF MOJO, CLIF Kid Organic ZBaR and LUNA Bar, in the U.S. and Canada because the peanut butter in those products was sourced, for a limited period of time, from the Peanut Corporation of America (PCA). PCA is a manufacturer and supplier of peanut butter for many food companies and manufacturers.

PCA is under investigation by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for a recent Salmonella outbreak thought to be caused by tainted peanut butter. In light of this investigation, and with an abundance of caution, Clif Bar & Company has enacted a voluntary recall. We take the health and safety of our consumers very seriously.

In the U.S, the following
14 products are included in the recall. Only bars with wrappers that have the following BEST BY or SELL BY codes1 on them, in all sizes and packages, are being recalled:

  5. CLIF Kid Organic ZBaR Peanut Butter BEST BY: 07JUL09 to 05SEP09 and 12NOV09
  6. LUNA Nutz Over Chocolate BEST BY: 29JUL09 to 03OCT09 and 11NOV09 to 14NOV09

In Canada, the following 4 products are included in the recall. Only bars with wrappers that have the following EXPIRY DATE/DATE D’EXPIRATION codes1 on them, in all sizes and packages, are being recalled:

  1. CLIF® BAR Chocolate Chip Peanut Crunch / Brisures de Chocolat aux rachides Croquants EXPIRY DATE/DATE D’EXPIRATION: 2009SE07

So yesterday, I was walking to they gym when I got a phone call from CostCo. They told me that since I had bought Clif Bars back in NOVEMBER, I should return them or destroy them. How weird is it that they have that kind of file on me? Is that not the weirdest thing?

The worst part? I still have the bars. I haven't eaten them yet.
