Product Recall: Essential Everyday Breakfast Bar

St. Louis, June 3, 2016 - In response to a voluntary product recall, Dierbergs Markets has removed the following product after an ingredient supplier, SunOpta, was found to have distributed sunflower kernels that may be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes:

Essential Everyday Fruit N Nut Breakfast Bars, 12 ct.
UPC: 41303-00137
Lot#: All

Llisteria monocytogenes is an organism that can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Although healthy individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea, Listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.

Customers may return the affected product to any Dierbergs for a full refund.
