Quaker Oats product recall

The Quaker Oats Company has recalled some of its granola bars and granola cereals which it says “have the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella”.

There are several products listed, but among those manufactured in the United States and exported to Barbados are the Big Chewy Cereal bars. These include the five-count 7.4 oz. six (30000314074) dated Best Before of Aug-02-24 and any earlier date; the 1.48 oz. bar; the caddy (300003156) and the ten-count 14.8 oz. (300003156) dated Best Before Aug-02-24 and any earlier date.

The release stated that “salmonella was an organism that could cause severe infections and, occasionally, fatal outcomes in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Healthy individuals infected with Salmonella typically experience fever, diarrhoea (which may be bloody), nausea, vomiting, and abdominal pain. In rare circumstances, Salmonella infection can lead to the organism entering the bloodstream and causing more serious illnesses, such as infected arteries (i.e., infected aneurysms), endocarditis, and arthritis”.

Consumers are asked to check their pantries for any product and discard it.

“Additionally, consumers with any of the mentioned products can return the described product to the original store where they purchased it, presenting their purchase receipt.”

The release also said that “Quaker has not received reports of illnesses related to the products covered by this market withdrawal”.
