WASHINGTON — The company RXBAR is recalling several varieties of their nutrition bars after finding out some have undeclared traces of peanut in them.

The company announced that it’s recalling the following varieties:

RXBAR: Apple Cinnamon, Blueberry, Chocolate Chip, Chocolate Hazelnut, Chocolate Sea Salt, Coconut Chocolate, Coffee Chocolate, Mango Pineapple, Maple Sea Salt, Mint Chocolate, Mixed Berry, Pumpkin Spice

RXBAR Kids: Apple Cinnamon Raisin, Berry Blast, Chocolate Chip

The company said it found the peanut in the Chocolate Sea Salt and Coconut Chocolate varieties last December and recalled them then, but is expanding the recall after hearing from customers that some are getting allergic reactions to the other varieties.

They said the peanut got there because of an ingredient provided by a supplier, and that they changed suppliers when they found out.

If you have one of the affected bars and have a peanut allergy, the company said you should throw it out and get a refund from the place you got it or the company itself.

You can email them at info@rxbar.com or call them at 1-312- 624-8200 Monday through Friday, 9:30 a.m. to 7 p.m., and Saturday and Sunday, 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. (Eastern time).
