We're all trying to eat well and exercise, but sometimes life gets a little hectic and we can't always eat the way we want to.

Whether you're grabbing it as a quick snack before your morning run, or an energy boost mid-afternoon, protein bars are a super convenient way to get a healthy boost of energy. While there are plenty to choose from, one of the most popular brands Clif Bar & Company makes healthy, organic energy bars.

The well-known organic foods brand has a variety of energy bars tailored to women, children and other markets.

Recently, Clif announced a massive recall of three of its protein bars. Turn to the next page to learn more about the specifics and see which bars are affected.
