Clif Bar & Co. is recalling an unrevealed volume of its energy bars because fragments of plastic have been found in some chocolate hazelnut Nut Butter Filled bars.
Only the chocolate hazelnut butter flavor of “CLIF Nut Butter Filled” energy bars is under recall. The recall covers individual bars, 12-count “caddies” and cases, according to the recall notice posted on the Food and Drug Administration’s website.
