Slim-Fast is recalling one of its Slim-Fast Meal Replacement bars because it may contain peanuts that are being recalled by Peanut Corp. of America.
The peanut recall was ordered by the Texas Department of State Health Services on Feb. 12 as a result of unsanitary conditions at the PCA Plainview, Texas, facility, that could have compromised the peanuts.
The recall affects Slim-Fast Optima Milk Chocolatey Peanut Meal Replacement Bar - sold in paperboard boxes, six bars per box, 60 g each, with various best-if-used-by dates.
The UPC code is on the bottom of the box: UPC: 68400 16215
Consumers who have any of the bars are asked to discard them and call 1-877-270-7397, which is operational 24 hours a day, for information on the recall. In addition, a consumer services representative is available between 8:30 a.m. and 6 p.m. ET.
No other Slim-Fast products are affected.
The Canadian Food Inspection Agency says it is monitoring the effectiveness of the recall.
