Clif Bar recently announced that they are expanding their voluntary recall.  It was a little confusing at first but here is the lowdown.  ClifBar has 14 products affected by their recall.  They are the same 14 products from the first announcement except that they have broadened the date scope.  The original list included Canadian products and this list has expanded into the UK.

You can see a full list of energy bars affected by Salmonella here.

This expansion is accompanied by a letter from Gary & Kit, co-owners of ClifBar. It included the below paragraph:

Clif Bar is taking a break and temporarily suspending production and shipments of our recalled products with peanuts and peanut butter. Now and during this break, consumers can enjoy our 91 other products that do not contain recalled peanuts or peanut butter.

They hope that by doing this they can rebuild trust, reduce confusion, and take a deeper look at their quality assurance practices.
