Gomacro Recalls Limited Number of Macrobars and Thrive Bars Because of Possible Health Risk

June 14, 2017 from the FDA:

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.
The recalled MacroBars and Thrive Bars were distributed across the country and internationally via retail stores, mail orders and direct delivery.
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:

The lot number and best by dates are found on the side panel of the product near the UPC.

The almond supplier has recalled all products made in their facility during the time of potential contamination. The only potentially affected ingredient supplied to GoMacro was one lot of almonds. Retailers and distributors who received the recalled lots have been contacted and asked to pull these lots from their inventory and shelves. Consumers who have purchased these products are urged to return them to the place of purchase for a full refund.
