Peanut Allergy Alert: Quaker Canada Issues National Voluntary Recall

Here’s an important message from Quaker Canada that was sent to all school boards:

“Dear School Board Association Representative:

We are hoping that you can assist us with the dissemination of information to the appropriate individuals within your School Board Association regarding a voluntary product recall.

As you will see in the attached notice, Quaker Canada has issued a voluntary recall of 14 count Quaker Chewy Granola Bars Value Pack cartons that may have been mislabeled.  No other packages of Quaker bars or Quaker products are affected.  This product should not be consumed by those who have a peanut or tree nut allergy.

Quaker Canada is working closely with the Canadian Food Inspection Agency, Anaphylaxis Canada, the Allergy & Asthma Information Association and their network groups to ensure the public is notified. The company is also working diligently to remove any mislabeled product from the marketplace, and we wish to assure our valued consumers that this situation will be remedied as quickly as possible.

We would appreciate any support you could provide to share this information with those who need to know.

Thank you in advance for your support.
