As you may be aware, a voluntary recall was announced involving Quaker brand granola bars and cereals and Cap'n Crunch brand Treat Bars (Berry Bar). These products are being recalled due to possible Salmonella exposure.
Many of our schools distribute these products through their snack programs and some have notified us that they served these products this week. You may have also purchased them.
Please see the information below from Health Canada:
- Check to see if you have recalled products - you can see the full list at https://www.quakerrecall.ca/.
- Do not consume, serve, use, sell, or distribute recalled products.
- Recalled products should be thrown out or returned to the location where they were purchased (for a full refund).
- If you think you became sick from consuming a recalled product, contact your healthcare provider.
- Food contaminated with Salmonella may not look or smell spoiled but can still make you sick. Young children, pregnant women, the elderly and people with weakened immune systems may contract serious and sometimes deadly infections. Healthy people may experience short-term symptoms such as fever, headache, vomiting, nausea, abdominal cramps and diarrhea. Long-term complications may include severe arthritis.
