General Mills recalls 5-count chocolate-flavored Fiber One due to labeling error

MINNEAPOLIS — General Mills on Thursday announced a voluntary recall of a single day’s production of its chocolate-flavored Fiber One 90-calorie chewy bars because of a labeling issue.

This voluntary recall includes only 5-count boxes of chocolate-flavored Fiber One 90-Calorie chewy bars with the following “better if used by” date printed on the top of the box: "19MAY2012BV."

Product produced on this date may have been packaged incorrectly, and may contain sensitive ingredients not listed on the box’s ingredient label, such as peanuts. Rather than containing chocolate-flavored Fiber One 90-calorie chewy bars, the packaging being recalled could contain chocolate peanut butter flavor Fiber One 90-calorie chewy bars.

There have been no reports of allergic reactions or illnesses associated with this product, the company reported.

No other varieties or production dates of Fiber One products are affected by this recall.
