Last month we received notice that some of our favorite breakfast and snack foods, released by Quaker, were the subject of a recent recall affecting over 70 different products put out by the company. We now get word that the recall has expanded! Yikes!

The original recall from the Quaker Oats Company was for specific granola bars and granola cereals due to the potential of Salmonella contamination. On January 11th, Quaker announced that the recall had expanded to include additional products, namely other cereals and bars.

"This recall includes Quaker Chewy Granola Bars and Cereals, Cap’n Crunch Bars and select Cereals, Gamesa Marias Cereal, Gatorade Peanut Butter Chocolate Protein Bars, Munchies Munch Mix and Snack Boxes that include these products."

The recalled items are broken down by category. Click on the individual one to be taken to the list of products, UPC, and product pictures.
