The peanut butter/paste Salmonella Typhimurium outbreak has witnessed another functional food victim with the recall of GNC’s Triflex peanut butter chews products.

The recall is detailed on the FDA website here.   As you may have heard, all of the recent salmonella-tainted products have contained peanut paste or peanut butter made at a Peanut Corp. of America plant in Blakely, Georgia.

GNC’s chews were sold in 60-count containers with the UPC 48107036942, with lot numbers ending 8275 and 8255.  Refunds are available by calling GNC’s customer service at 1-888-462-2548.

Anyone searching for a safe peanut based protein bar might want to try VPX Zero Impact MRB bars in peanut butter and jelly flavor.  I have it on good authority that VPX has confirmed its supply of peanuts is safe.  Tasty too!
