On January 30, 2009, we expanded our voluntary and precautionary recall of CLIF® and LUNA® branded bars because of concern that the recalled bars contain peanut products that were manufactured by Peanut Corporation of America (PCA), which is the focus of an ongoing Salmonella investigation. Clif Bar & Company took this action in response to PCA’s recent expansion of its peanut products recall to include all peanut products produced in PCA’s Blakely, Georgia plant since January 1, 2007.

In light of PCA’s actions, and with continued caution, we’ve expanded our voluntary recall. We take the health and safety of our consumers very seriously.

In the U.S, the following products with BEST BY or SELL BY dates1 within the ranges below, all sizes and packages, are included in the initial and expanded recall.
