Allergen Recall: Builder’s Protein Bars
Clif Builders Chocolate Mint Protein Bar
Clif Bar is recalling their Builder's Protein Bars - chocolate mint because they contain a lot of allergens which are not mentioned on the label.
The allergens the Builders Chocolate Mint Protein Bars contain are peanuts, almonds, brazil nuts, cashews, hazelnuts, macadamia nuts, pecans, and walnuts, and barley, wheat and rye (cereals containing gluten) and also milk or milk constituents.
What is the difference between nuts and peanuts?
This is a question we get asked a lot on our courses. When we talk about nuts, we mean tree nuts; i.e., nuts that grow on trees - like all those almonds, brazil nuts, cashews, hazelnuts, macadamia nuts, pecans and walnuts that these Builder's Protein Bars contain.
Peanuts are also called groundnuts and it is this name that clearly shows the difference. Peanuts grow in the ground, and are actually part of the beans and peas family. But though they are strictly speaking a legume, they are similar in taste and nutritional contents that they are often considered a nut for culinary purposes and called as such in the English language.
Recall of the Clif Builders Chocolate Mint Protein Bar
According to the Food Standard's Agency's recall notice, the Builder's Protein Bars do not only contain nuts and tree nuts which are not declared at all, but they also contain milk and milk derivatives and grains containing gluten. However, Clif Bar's own recall notice on their website only mentions the nuts and tree nuts, but not the milk and gluten products...
