Protein Bars Recalled Due to Listeria Risk

Two varieties of Millville protein bars, which are sold through Aldi stores, have been recalled due to a possible risk of Listeria.

Schulze and Burch Biscuit Co., of Chicago, ILL is voluntarily recalling a variety of Millville Protein Chewy Bars products because they have the potential to be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes.

Listeria monocytogenes is an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, people with diabetes, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems.
