Warning: LARA bars

After random but repeated reports of possible reactions to LARA bars; a member of the Delphi forum has received confirmation that the almonds used in LARA bars may, indeed, contain corn DNA. For the post click here.

Kudos to the LARA bar company for investigating this for us! And a huge thank you to them for doing the testing! Unfortunately, this is followed by a warning to use their products with caution if you are sensitive to small amounts of corn. Bars without almonds should be okay, but the risk of cross contamination may still be present so use caution.
