Kashi Company Key Developments

Kashi Company Recalls Kashi Brand Trail Mix Whole Grain Bars Due to Listeria Monocytogenes

Kashi Company is recalling Kashi brand Trail Mix Whole Grain Bars from the marketplace due to possible Listeria monocytogenes contamination. Consumers should not consume the recalled products are Kashi Trail Mix Whole Grain 210 g and Kashi Whole Grain Bars 630 g.

Kashi Company Recalls One Variety of Kashi® Granola Bars and One Variety of Bear Naked® Granola Due to Potential Health Risk Related to Sunflower Seeds

Kashi Company announced a voluntary recall of Kashi® Trail Mix Chewy Granola Bars and Bear Naked® Soft Baked Granola, Cinnamon + Sunflower Butter in the continental United States because they contain ingredients made from sunflower seeds distributed by supplier, SunOpta, that have the potential to be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes. Listeria monocytogenes can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Although healthy individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea, Listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women. The company has received no reports of illness to date but is taking this action as part of its commitment to the health and safety of the people who eat its foods.
