      While several varieties of a plant-based nutrition bar were recalled a few months ago, another one of its bars is being recalled.

      On July 11, Utah-based Probar LLC stated it had initiated a food-product recall due to undeclared allergens.

      On July 12, the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) announced that Mountain Equipment Co-op (MEC), Probar LLC, PSC Natural Foods, and Purity Life Health Products were recalling a number of its Probar products because they contain milk and soy not declared on the label.

      The affected products included the Simply Real Bar (Chocolate Coconut Flavour), Chocolate Coconut, Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip, Original Trail Mix, Wholeberry Blast, and Superfood Slam. (For specific UPC numbers and expiry dates, see this article.)

      Then on September 19, the CFIA announced that Horizon Distributors is recalling the chocolate coconut flavor version of Probar’s The Simply Real Bar.

      Although this version was included in the previous recall, the date code in this latest recall differs.

      This nutrition bar is being recalled as milk or soy may be in it and are not declared on the label.

      The 85-gram bar has UPC 8 53152 80066 6 and a date code stating “BEST BEFORE 20-MA-03”.

      The bar is being recalled in British Columbia, as well as Alberta, Manitoba, Saskatchewan, the Yukon, and the Northwest Territories.

      Anyone with allergies to milk or soy shouldn’t consume this product, and anyone with the product should either dispose of it or return it to the place of purchase.

      The CFIA stated that there haven’t been any reported reactions to consuming this product so far within Canada.

      More information about food allergies is available at the Health Canada website.
