Piscataway-based refrigerated handheld bar brand Clio Snacks is voluntarily recalling its Strawberry Granola & Greek Yogurt Parfait Bar over possible listeria contamination.
Distributed to select Walmart stores between March 5 and 8, the affected product comes in a single-serve box with UPC code 854021008152, Lot Number 048C2023 and an expiration date of 4/30/2023 stamped on the side of the packaging.
In a March 14 announcement, Clio said, “This potential limited exposure was found at a third-party manufacturer’s facility where Parfait Bars are produced. The third-party manufacturer does not manufacture any other Clio products. Clio does not manufacture Parfait bars at its own facility.”
“The recall was the result of a routine testing program by the company which revealed that affected Strawberry Parfait product produced by Clio’s contract manufacturer may contain Listeria monocytogenes,” the company said.
Clio noted that it has not received any reports of illnesses related to the products to date. The symptoms of listeriosis – fever, vomiting and diarrhea – most often affect older adults, immune-compromised people and pregnant women, who can pass it on to their fetuses, according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
Production and distribution of the product has been suspended while the FDA and the company investigate the matter, Clio said.
Shoppers who purchased the Strawberry Granola & Yogurt Parfait bar with an expiration date of 4/30/2023 should not consume it, but instead return it to the place of purchase for a full refund or throw it away.
Anyone with questions should contact the company at 1-908-505-2546, Monday-Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
