Important Information: The Bethel Education Foundation was informed on June 6, 2016 that the Kashi Trail Mix bars we gave away at the Bethel FIT Youth Challenge during the We are Bethel celebration on Saturday have been included in a voluntary nationwide food recall.

The Kashi Trail Mix bars contain ingredients made from sunflower seeds that have the potential to be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes. The company has received no reports of illness to date but is taking this action as a precautionary measure.

If you still have one of the bars distributed at the Bethel FIT event, please discard it immediately.

Thanks for your continued support of the Bethel Education Foundation and Bethel kids.
