FDA warns – Bobo’s Peach Oat Bars recalled due to mis-packaging, undeclared coconut

According to the FDA, Loveland, Colorado-based Bobo’s has voluntarily a number of its Bobo’s Peach Oat Bars due to the potential presence of coconut, an allergen not listed in the product’s ingredient list.

Consumers with a major allergy or serious sensitivity to tree nuts could suffer a major, life-threatening allergic reaction if they ingest the product.

Initiated by the company on December 9, 2023, the nationwide recall covers Peach Bars that were distributed and made available for purchase at retail stores via online orders at www.eatbobos.com.

Found under UPC (Universal Product Code) 829262000203, affected products are 3-ounce single bars individually wrapped, bearing a printed lot code of 3J27111 and a “Best By” date of 7/23/24. They also come in cartons containing 12 bars and with printed lot codes of 3J21111 or 3K01111, along with “Best By” dates of 7/17/2024 and 7/28/2024, respectively.

Officials took action after learning that coconut-containing product had been distributed in packaging that does not indicate coconut as an ingredient.

While Bobo’s has not received any reports of illness in connection to the problem, anyone who may have purchased a product under the affected lot is asked safely discard it. Customers are invited to return the item to its place of purchase for an exchange or, in the event of an allergy concern, a complete refund.

Additional questions about this recall may be addressed to the company at info@eatbobos.com or 303-938-1977, Monday through Friday, from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. MDT.
