Voluntary Recall of One Batch (5180XXXX) of COFFEE CRISP SNACK SIZE BARS
Manufactured June 29, 2005
Sold in various Nestlé Assortment Packages



Code: beginning with 5180, followed by a series of numbers and letters

No other brands or bar sizes are affected by this recall

Nestlé Canada is voluntarily recalling one batch of COFFEE CRISP SNACK SIZE BARS, manufactured on June 29, 2005 and sold in various Nestlé Assortment Packages, as a result of one consumer complaint. This one batch of COFFEE CRISP SNACK SIZE BARS may contain peanut protein which is not declared on the label and should not be consumed by people with allergies to peanut protein.

Consumers are advised to check individual COFFEE CRISP SNACK SIZE BARS to verify if they have the affected code - beginning with 5180 followed by a series of numbers and letters (found on the bar package under the fold). Please see attached list for affected assortment packages.

We believe this to be an isolated incident and no other brands or bar sizes are affected by this recall. We are working closely with the Canadian Food Inspection Agency to thoroughly investigate this matter. At the same time we are making every effort to quickly remove affected product from store shelves and to communicate with Canadians with peanut allergies. We have been in contact with both the Allergy and Asthma Information Association and Anaphylaxis Canada to advise them of this situation and gain their support in communicating to the allergic community.

At Nestlé we are focused on consumer safety and product quality and are committed to providing SNACK SIZE peanut-free labelled confections.

Consumer Questions
Consumers are being asked to check for Nestlé Assortment Packages containing COFFEE CRISP SNACK SIZE with the Code beginning with 5180, followed by a series of numbers and letters (see attached list). If they have product with these codes, they are asked to contact 1-800-387-4636 to arrange a refund or return.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause our consumers and customers. Should you have any questions, please contact your Nestlé sales representative. We thank you for your understanding, cooperation and assistance in this matter.
