Reason For Recall LIN-MAR PARTNERS, INC of Austin, Texas recalled two varieties of Longhorn Bars: Roasted Peanut with Chocolate Energy Bars and Peanut Butter Trail Mix Protein Bars, because they have the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella, an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Healthy persons infected with Salmonella often experience fever, diarrhea (which may be bloody), nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain. In rare circumstances, infection with Salmonella can result in the organism getting into the bloodstream and producing more severe illnesses such as arterial infections (i.e., infected aneurysms), endocarditis and arthritis. This recall was initiated because these products were made using peanuts from Sunland Inc. which has issued an expanded recall of the peanuts used in these products.
