US: General Mills recalls Nature Valley bar on allergen alert
General Mills has recalled one day's production of Almond Nature Valley Sweet and Salty Nut granola bars in the US because of a "labelling issue".
The company said it has issued the voluntary recall because the product may contain allergens not listed in the ingredients - namely peanuts. General Mills said the issue arose from the result of a production error, which is now resolved.
No illnesses have been reported in relation to the recalled products.
