CLIF Bars claimed that they discovered the issue after receiving a small number of complaints due to allergic reactions. However, according to a statement on the company's website, there are no illnesses associated with the recall.
If you don’t suffer from a nut allergy, there’s no reason to be concerned or to return the product. If you do, however, you can bring the bars and their purchase receipts to the store where you bought them to receive a full refund.
