Nature Valley Granola Thins recall: Foul-up puts wrong product in box

Granola Thins recallCertain boxes of Nature Valley Dark Chocolate Flavor Granola Thins are being recalled because Peanut Butter Flavor Granola Thins were mistakenly put in the boxes, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration said.

The recall received the highest level of food recalls - Class One - because the Dark Chocolate flavor boxes don't list peanut butter as an ingredient. Peanut butter can cause severe reactions to those who are allergic.

No reactions or illnesses have been linked to the recall, the FDA said.

The only item subject to this recall are 10-count boxes of Nature Valley Dark Chocolate Flavor Granola Thins with this date code: 05JUN2011 YO 12.

The peanut butter flavored snacks that are mistakenly inside will appear different than the items shown on the box.

Anyone with a peanut allergy or is not sure if they have one are urged to not eat those Granola Thins and contact General Mills to get a replacement or a refund.

Consumers can call General Mills at 800-231-0308.
