WASHINGTON (WIFR) – Clif Bar & Company is recalling three kinds of their popular protein bars because they may contain nuts.

The recalled flavors include CLIF BUILDER’S Bar Chocolate Mint, CLIF Kid Zbar Protein Chocolate Mint, and CLIF Kid Zbar Protein Chocolate Chip. The company says the bars may contain some undeclared peanuts, almonds, Brazil nuts, cashews, hazelnuts, macadamia nuts, pecans, walnuts, and/or coconuts.

Clif Bar says they are recalling the bars out of the safety of those who may have nut allergies. Those who have nut allergies are told not to eat the bars while those who are not allergic to nuts can safely eat the products.

The bars were sold in stores and online throughout the United States.

The company says they discovered the issue after a few customers complained about having allergic reactions after eating the bars.
