Company Announcement Date: March 14, 2023
FDA Publish Date: March 15, 2023
Product Type: Food & Beverages
Reason for Announcement: Listeria monocytogenes
Company Name: Clio Snacks
Brand Name: Clio
Product Description: Strawberry Granola & Greek Yogurt Parfait Bar
Clio Snacks of Piscataway, N.J., is voluntarily recalling 581 cases of its Strawberry Granola & Greek Yogurt Parfait Bars due to potential contamination with Listeria monocytogenes, an organism which 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.
Product was distributed to select Walmart stores between March 5-8, 2023.
The impacted product comes in a single-serving box with UPC Code 854021008152, Lot Number 048C2023, and expiration date of April 30, 2023, stamped on the side of the box.
Strawberry Granola & Greek Yogurt Parfait Bar is the only product impacted. No other products are being recalled. No illnesses have been reported to date.
This potential limited exposure was found at a third-party manufacturer’s facility where parfait bars are produced. The third-party manufacturer does not manufacture any other Clio products. Clio does not manufacture Parfait bars at its own facility.
The recall was the result of a routine testing program by the company which revealed that affected Strawberry Parfait product produced by Clio’s contract manufacturer may contain Listeria monocytogenes. The third-party manufacturer has ceased production and Clio has ceased distribution of the affected product while the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the company continue their investigation into what caused the problem.
Consumers who have purchased Clio Strawberry Granola & Yogurt Parfait bar with an expiration date of April 30, 2023, should not consume the product and are urged to return it to the place of purchase for a full refund or to destroy the recalled product.
Consumers with questions may contact the company at 1-908-505-2546 Monday-Friday from 9AM-5PM EST.
