Almond supplier may have exposed ingredient to Listeria monocytogenes.

GoMacro, of Viola, Wis., is recalling a limited number of MacroBars and Thrive Bars because they have the potential to be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes

On June 14, 2017, GoMacro was notified by its supplier of almonds, an ingredient in specific MACROBARS and THRIVE BARS, that the ingredient has the potential to be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes. The supplier notified GoMacro of this recall due to an expansion of a previous recall. No contamination has been reported to have occurred in any of these products, nor have any illnesses been reported to date. In the interest of abundant caution, GoMacro is recalling the following products and lots:

Consumers who have purchased these products are urged to return them to the place of purchase for a full refund.

“Even though there is no indication of contamination in our product, GoMacro puts the consumer at the forefront of every decision we make. We offer this voluntary recall in the interest of protecting the health of the consumer,” GoMacro CEO Jola Sonkin said.
