Breaking news for everyone's consumption

Where Did 12 Million Peanut Bars Go?

The weekly “Enforcement Report” from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) always contains a nugget or two.   The Jan.6th report is the first issued for 2010, but it still contains a lot of detail involving FDA’s big 2009 recalls of all products containing either peanuts or pistachios.

This week’s report illustrates how the Salmonella contamination by the Peanut Corporation of American was really spread all around the world, not just into every cupboard in the United States.  Take Clif Bars, for example.  Over 12.2 million were recalled and their distribution included the U.S., Canada, and the United Kingdom.

And, as many times as its name has come up, it appears that not everyone at FDA can remember PCA’s name anymore.  One recall is just chalked up to the fact that the “product (is) made with peanut paste from Georgia facility that has positive tests for Salmonella.”

Here’s what the report has on Class 1 food recalls:

PRODUCT


1) Supreme Protein brand Caramel Nut Bars, 96 g, 50 g and 20 g; 96g UPC 6 39373 02004 2; 50g UPC 6 39372 02058 5; 20g UPC 6 39372 02147 6. Recall # F-0298-2010;
2) Supreme Protein brand Peanut Butter Crunch Bars; 86 g, 43 g and 20 g. 86g UPC 6 39372 02120 9; 43 g UPC 6 39372 02129 2; 20g UPC 6 39372 02148 3. Recall # F-0299-2010;
3) Original Supreme Protein brand Carmel Nut Energy Bars, 96 gr. UPC 6 39372 02058 5 The product referred to as “Caramel Nut (Energy)” is the product labeled “Original” (as compared to that labeled “Carb Conscious”). Supreme Protein’s original bar had been termed “Energy” and then after releasing the “Carb Conscious” version, the company renamed the first product “Original.” No product has been labeled “Energy” since well before the affected products were produced, but Supreme Protein’s distributors and retailers still refer to the product as the “Energy” product when ordering, and that is also what that bar is still called internally at the company. Accordingly, Supreme Protein thought it important to identify the affected product by this, now colloquial, name. Recall # F-0300-2010
