Quaker Oats expands list of products recalled for salmonella risk, includes Cap’n Crunch cereal bars

The Quaker Oats Company, the popular cereal and snack company owned by PepsiCo, has expanded an earlier December recall of certain granola bars and cereal products to include dozens more items potentially contaminated with salmonella.

The recall now includes popular products like Cap’n Crunch Treats cereal bars and Gatorade Protein Peanut Butter Chocolate Bars, with “best before” dates ranging between Jan. 11, 2024 and Oct. 31, 2024, according to a company announcement posted on the Food and Drug Administration website Thursday.

The expanded recall follows an earlier Dec. 15 announcement recalling “specific granola bars and granola cereals” including the kid-favorite Quaker Chewy Bars, Quaker Simply Granola products and the Quaker On The Go Snack Mix, among other items, “because they have the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella.” The products were sold in the United States, Puerto Rico, Guam and Saipan. A full list of items included in the original recall can be found here.

Dozens more products were added to the expanded recall list this week, including additional types of Quaker Chewy Bars, Cap’n Crunch Treats bars and cereals, Quaker Oatmeal Squares cereal, Munchies Snack Mix and Gamesa Marias Cereal. A list of expanded recall items — as well as specific sizes, UPC tracking numbers, and “best before” dates — can be found on the FDA website, and a full list of all recalled products and product information can be found on Quaker Oats’ recall website.
