Quaker Canada is recalling several cereal and granola bars due to health risks.

Quaker Canada issued a voluntary recall of granola bars and Harvest Crunch cereals due to the potential exposure to salmonella, Quaker said in a press release on Jan. 11.

The cereal company said this is the direct result of a recall initiated earlier in the United States by the Quaker Oats Company.

“This action is being taken in Canada out of an abundance of caution and commitment to the wellbeing of our Canadian consumers,” Quaker said in the press release.

Salmonella is a bacterium that can possibly cause diarrhea, fever and abdominal cramps. Most individuals recover without treatment.

In some cases, diarrhea may be so severe that the patient needs to be hospitalized. The elderly, infants and those with impaired immune systems are more likely to have a severe illness.

The recalled products have been distributed across Canada.

People should not consume the recalled products.

Quaker Canada is working closely with the Canadian Food Inspection Agency to ensure the recalled products are removed from the marketplace.

Some of the products on the list include granola cereals and bars such as Quaker Harvest Crunch Original Quaker Harvest Crunch, Original Granola Cereal, Quaker Harvest Crunch Dark, Chocolate Cranberry Almond Granola Cereal, Quaker Harvest Crunch Raisin Almond Granola Cereal, Quaker Chewy Chocolate Chip Granola Bars, and Quaker Chewy S’mores Granola Bars.
