I figured we where the last customers of the night maybe they where just sloppy about making them. I got about half way threw mine and looked at it in the light and the meat was slightly pink. But again thought nothing of it. Took a few more bits and threw it out I started feeling a little nauseous. My adult daughter had the same thing happen. About 45 mins later we both started feeling very nauseous. She threw up. And started having diarrhea. She also has a bad immune system and gets sick quickly. I did not throw up.

    Reason of the recall: Undeclared almonds
    FDA Recall date: November 25, 2020
    Recall details: Riverside Natural Foods, of Vaughan, ON is voluntarily recalling its 8 ounce package... See Mores of " Good & Gather Banana Chocolate Chip Date & Nut Bar " because they were improperly labelled and may contain undeclared almonds.

    The product is labelled to may contain tree nuts; however, people who have allergies to almonds may experience a serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume these products.
