Those with peanut or tree nut allergies beware. Clif Bar & Company is recalling many flavors of its popular “protein bars due to possible peanut contamination.” The recall itself was issued in response to “a small number of consumer complaints alleging peanut or tree nut allergic reactions,” though the FDA claims there “have been no confirmed illnesses as a result of the product’s recall.” So what flavors have been recalled?
