SoLo GI Lemon Lift energy voluntary recall (March 2017)

SoLo GI Lemon Lift energy bars sold at MEC after October 4, 2016 may be subject to a voluntary recall recently initiated by the manufacturer New Era Nutrition Inc.

Recalled Lemon Lift bars have one of the following “best by / lot codes”:

BB/MA: 11/04/17 5410621700

BB/MA: 02/02/18 5410630700

BB/MA: 04/09/18 5410700900

According to the manufacturer, the SoLo GI Lemon Lift energy bars are being recalled after one of its ingredient suppliers was found to have distributed products that may be contaminated with Escherichia coli O157:H7 bacteria (E. Coli O157:H7).

Although there have been no reported illnesses from people consuming this product, New Era Nutrition Inc. is voluntary recalling the products in an abundance of caution. Please inspect your energy bars for the product codes noted above. If your energy bars have best by/lot codes affected by the recall, then throw out the bars or return them to MEC for a refund by April 30 (if possible). Some other flavours of SoLo GI bars are also part of this recall, but they were not sold by MEC.
