General Mills announces voluntary recall of Nature Valley product
MINNEAPOLIS A single day’s production of a certain General Mills’ Nature Valley granola thins flavor is being recalled by the company due to a labeling issue.
General Mills said that a production error resulted in a limited number of properly labeled, individually wrapped Nature Valley peanut butter flavor granola thins packages being inserted into 10-count boxes labeled as Nature Valley dark chocolate flavor granola thins. While there have been no reports of allergic reactions or illnesses associated with this product, the possibility of an unlabeled allergen makes the recall classified as a Class One recall, General Mills said.
The voluntary recall includes only 10-count boxes of Nature Valley dark chocolate flavor granola thins with one "better if used by" date printed on the top of the box: 05JUN2011 YO 12. No other varieties or production dates of Nature Valley products are affected by this recall.
Consumers requesting refunds or calling with further questions should contact General Mills consumer services at (800) 231-0308.
