It's the recall headache that just keeps getting worse.
General Mills is recalling select flavors of Nature Valley granola bars over concerns that sunflower seeds in the bars may be contaminated with listeria.
The granola bar recalls are the result of an ever-widening sunflower seed recall that was first announced in early May and swiftly grew to over 100 products. As the recall expanded over the last month or so, more and more snack products were deemed at risk because they may contain tainted seeds.
Listeria monocytogenes can cause serious sickness in anyone, though pregnant women, newborns, older adults and those with weakened immune systems are especially at risk, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
