Protein Bars Recalled for Possible Listeria Contamination
Protein bars made by Bulletproof 360, a company based in Washington State, have been recalled over concerns that they have been contaminated with Listeria.
About the Bulletproof 360 Protein Bar Recall
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued the recall for some of Bulletproof 360’s flavors of both collagen protein bars and collagen protein bites.
Listeria contamination can result in a multitude of serious health problems. This bacteria can cause serious infections in children, the frail or elderly and can be fatal. Listeria may also cause stillbirths or miscarriages if a pregnant woman comes into contact with the Listeria monocytogenes bacteria.
The affected bars were distributed between April 7th, 2017 and June 12th 2017. These products are being recalled both nationally and internationally, seeing that they were ordered online and shipped to countries in several continents.
Bulletproof is informing all of its retailers and distributors of this recall, and they are making it known to customers who have purchased these protein bars and bites in order to facilitate the return and destruction of unused products. All customers that return contaminated products will receive a full replacement of their product or online store credit.
