Quaker Oats Recalls Some Granola Bars, Cereals Due To Potential Health Risk


The Quaker Oats Company has voluntarily recalled specific granola bars and granola-based cereals.

Some of the products are available locally and there are concerns that others in the recall might arrive in barrels people overseas send to Saint Lucians for Christmas.

In a press release, the Quaker Oats Company explained that the recall was due to potential Salmonella contamination.

According to the release, the organism can cause severe and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. 

Healthy people are also at risk.

The recalled products include multiple flavors of Chewy granola bars, Chewy Dipps granola bars, and the granola bars that were part of several Frito-Lay snack packs.

Quaker Oats said it had not received any confirmed reports of illnesses or hospitalisations related to the products in the recall. 

The company also said only the products in the recall list are affected and none of its other products.

In addition, the company has reported the potential contamination issue to the relevant authorities.

The recall list is available at
