Some Kashi trail mix bars, Hostess cakes and Muscle Milk have been removed from supermarket shelves in Cayman following voluntary recalls recently.
Kirk Market has stopped selling Kashi Trail Mix Chewy Granola Bars after the company issued a recall. Kashi’s recall includes two varieties of its snack bars and two varieties of Bear Naked granola because they contain ingredients made from sunflower seeds distributed by its supplier, SunOpta, that have the potential to be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes.
Listeria monocytogenes can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems.
Kashi has no confirmed reports of illness to date.
Kirk Market said in a statement that 7.4 oz Kashi Trail Mix Chewy Granola Bars, with the UPC number 18627 03000 and with a best before date of “MAR0117” or earlier, have been removed from the shelves.
“We are encouraging all customers who have purchased affected product to discard it or return the item to Kirk Market’s customer service along with the receipt for a full refund,” the company said in its statement.
Certain lots of snack cakes and donuts, including Ding Dongs, Zingers and Devils Food, have been recalled because the flour contains undeclared peanut residue. According to the company, it is recalling the products out of an abundance of caution, saying the “amount of peanut exposure from use of the flours and affected products is considered to be low and not expected to cause adverse health effects in the vast majority of peanut allergic consumers.”
As of June 3, Hostess had received notice of two allergic reactions related to the product.
The Hostess products affected by the recall include single-serve snack cakes and donuts, multipack boxes and bagged donuts.
Foster’s Food Fair IGA said in a statement it has removed these products from all of its stores. “We encourage all customers who have purchased items listed from any of our Foster’s Food Fair IGA, Priced Right or Bay Market locations to check both the ‘Best By’ dates and lot codes, and to return affected product for a full refund. Please discontinue consumption,” Foster’s statement says.
