The up and coming popular protein bar, RXBAR, is facing serious problems and recalls on accounts of undeclared peanut traces in their lines of bars said to be nut free.
RXBAR is a protein bar that was created in 2012, and has had a recent soar in sales, as you can now find it easily on many shelves in you grocery store due to the solid or bright colored boxes stamped with phrases such as “3 Egg Whites, 6 Almonds, 4 Cashews, 2 Dates, No B.S.” This bar has also made significant headway in Melissa Hartwig’s “Whole30” diet, a diet consisting of solely whole and organic foods.
As the RXBAR comes in many flavors such as peanut butter, hazelnut, maple, and many more, two of the flavors, Chocolate Seasalt and Coconut were said to be peanut free, but the story doesn’t end there, as many people in recent months have been in life-threatening situations in regards to these bars that are apparent to contain peanuts although such information is absent from the label or box. The FDA has declared a recall on RXBAR and RXBAR Kids products from the marketplace and none are to be distributed until further notice.
So much for healthy eating! Pass me the Cheetos.
