I suspect that many of you love to grab that ‘healthy’ and ‘quick fix’ granola bar.  Well before you do, you may want to   check which one it is you are getting ready to bite into.  This notification just in from the FDA of a voluntary recall by Trader Joe’s on it’s product – Chocolate Chip Chewy Coated Granola BarsProduct Recalls: Granola bars.

[I]t has the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella, an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Healthy persons infected with Salmonella often experience fever, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain. In rare circumstances, infection with Salmonella can result in the organism getting into the bloodstream and producing more severe illnesses such as arterial infections (i.e., infected aneurysms), endocarditis and arthritis.

The FDA’s press release advises that there have been “no illnesses . . . reported to date in connection with this product.” Forewarned is a good policy – so be  forewarned!
