Clif Bar & Company is recalling several of its popular protein bars after complaints about allergic reactions.

The Food and Drug Administration said the bars are being recalled due to the possible presence of undeclared peanuts and tree nuts, including almonds, Brazil nuts, cashews, hazelnuts, macadamia nuts, pecans, walnuts and coconuts.
