RXBAR is voluntarily recalling certain varieties of bars because they may contain undeclared peanuts. People who have peanut allergies run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume this product.

Impacted are the below RXBAR varieties with “Best By” dates ranging between 1/14/19 and 10/19/19, depending on the variety (see full chart below):

  • Blueberry
  • Chocolate Sea Salt
  • Coconut Chocolate

No other RXBAR flavours are affected by the recall, in Canada.

RXBAR identified the potential for peanut in two varieties – Chocolate Sea Salt and Coconut Chocolate – in December and initiated a recall of those varieties in the US. We are expanding the recall out of an abundance of caution after recently receiving consumer contacts regarding allergic reactions to additional varieties.

At RXBAR, food safety and quality are our top priority. Our investigation concluded that the issue stems from a specific ingredient supplied by a third party. We immediately changed suppliers for this ingredient when the issue arose.

People who have peanut allergies and have purchased affect product can return it to their local retailer. If the product was purchased directly from rxbrands.ca, please reach out to our Support Team for a refund. Consumers can contact RXBAR’s consumer service team at info@rxbrands.ca or 1-647-503-4833 Monday through Friday, 8:30am CT - 6pm CT and Saturday and Sunday 10am CT - 1pm CT.
