The United States Food and Drug Administration today, May 22, 2014, sent out a special bulletin alerting all consumers who suffer from peanut allergies of a food recall.

According to this bulletin: KIND Healthy Snacks (KIND) is voluntarily recalling STRONG & KIND bars as well as KIND Healthy Grains Maple Pumpkin Seeds with Sea Salt bars after learning that, contrary to KIND's strict quality specifications, its supplier roasted pumpkin seeds using equipment that had also been used to roast peanuts. "While we know our supplier conducted rigorous allergen cleans before roasting the seeds, they did not perform tests to validate that no peanut particles remained, and KIND takes no chances when it comes to the safety of our consumers," said John Leahy, President of KIND.

KIND Healthy Snacks are available nationwide at supermarkets and convenience stores. According to the bulletin "the five STRONG & KIND bars that are affected by the recall are clearly labeled on the packaging: Roasted Jalapeño, Honey Smoked BBQ, Thai Sweet Chili, Honey Mustard, and Hickory Smoked. In addition, KIND Healthy Grains Maple Pumpkin Seeds with Sea Salt bars are also clearly labeled.

Customers with questions or who would like product replacements or refunds may contact the company 1-855-884-5463 Monday – Friday, 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. EST or e-mail the company at customerservice@kindsnacks.com.

This recall is being conducted in cooperation with the Food and Drug Administration.
