MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — General Mills Inc. is voluntarily recalling chocolate flavored Fiber One 90-Calorie Chewy Bars 5-count boxes because they may contain bars with peanuts.

People who are allergic to peanuts can have severe, sometimes life-threatening reactions to the nut.

The company said that chocolate peanut butter flavor bars, individually wrapped and bearing correct labels, were mistakenly put in 5-count boxes labeled as chocolate flavor Fiber One 90-Calorie Chewy Bars.

General Mills did not disclose the exact number of packages that are affected by the recall but said it encompasses only a single day's production of the product.
