1 min read

Dec. 18, 2023 -- The Quaker Oats Company on Friday announced the recall of dozens of granola bars and granola cereals because they have the potential to be contaminated with salmonella.

The recalled products included “Chewy Bars” and granola bars included in Frito-Lays snack boxes. The products were sold in all 50 states, Puerto Rico, Guam, and Saipan and have “best by” dates ranging until October 2024.

So far, the company has received no confirmed reports of illness related to the recalled products, a company announcement posted on the FDA website said.

Customers who purchased these products should reach out to Quaker Oats at www.quakergranolarecall.com or call 1-800-492-9322. A full list of recalled products can be found on the FDA website. Quaker has not said how the potential contaminations occurred.

The FDA says salmonella is an organism that may cause infected people to experience fever, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, and abdominal pain. The condition can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems.
