Purely Elizabeth’s mass not-food-in-your-food recall of various granolas and grain-free bars with cashews also collected Publix’s GreenWise Cranberry Cashew Granola.

In its recall notice explanation of what it called “possible foreign matter contamination,” Purely Elizabeth said, “we learned that cashews provided by our supplier during a brief time this spring may contain foreign objects. We have taken corrective action and replaced this cashew supplier with a new one.”

Publix’s announcement of the recall on its website was more specific: “The issue was discovered as a result of a consumer communication. The foreign matter may include plastic, rocks or glass.”

Here are the products covered in this recall:

Publix GreenWise Cranberry Cashew Granola, 12-ounce pouch, lot No. OH03619, expiration date 02/05/20.

Purely Elizabeth’s Coconut Grain-Free Granola, 16-ounce pouch, sold at Costco, expiration dates 11/30/19; 12/3/19; 12/4/19; and 12/5/19.
