Abbott Nutrition Announces Voluntary Recall of Nutrition Bars

February 17, 2009

Abbott Nutrition announced that it is initiating a precautionary, voluntary recall of ZonePerfect® Chocolate Caramel Cluster bars in connection with the expanded recall of peanut ingredients manufactured by Peanut Corporation of America (PCA).

The product being recalled is:

ZonePerfect Chocolate Caramel Cluster bars
Size: All Sizes
1.76oz bar UPC: 638102-203298
20.5g bar UPC: 638102-594761
(and any other UPCs for ZonePerfect Chocolate Caramel Cluster bars, recall affects all sizes and items)

Abbott Nutrition is taking this action as a precautionary measure because peanut granules in these bars were sourced from the PCA plant in Plainview, Texas. Since Abbott Nutrition conducts extensive quality testing prior to distribution, the company has no reason to believe there is a health or safety issue with the impacted bars.
