Quaker Oats Company, a division of PepsiCo, has issued a voluntary recall of 8-count Quaker Chewy Smashbar Graham Pretzel snack bars due to an undeclared milk allergen that is not noted on the label. People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to milk products run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume this product.
The affected product is limited to Quaker Chewy Smashbar Graham Pretzel snack bars with the UPC bar code ending in 31108 and best before dates: Oct 29 11 RB, Oct 30 11 MM, Oct 30 11 RB, Nov 22 11 RB, Nov 23 11 RB, Nov 24 11 RB, Nov 27 11 RB, Dec 22 11 RB, Dec 22 11 MM, Dec 23 11 RB, Dec 23 11 MM, Dec 24 11 RB, Dec 24 11 MM stamped on the side of the package.

Quaker is in the process of recovering the product involved and is in contact with the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to ensure the continued safety of those consumers who may be impacted by this issue.
