June 11, 2016 – fda.gov – Bounce USA of Bend, Oregon is voluntary recalling the Bounce Apple Cinnamon Protein Punch Energy Balls (newly named Apple Cinnamon Protein Energy Balls) because it has the potential to be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes, an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems.
Although healthy individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea, listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.
This recall was initiated when the supplier, SunOpta, notified us of the sunflower kernels expanded recall due to the possibility that some sunflower kernels may be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes.
