Lyons Magnus LLC is recalling 53 nutritional products and beverages manufactured under brands such as Oatly, Stumptown and Pirq because the products may have microbial contamination.
The recall notice was posted on the US Food & Drug Administration website on July 29.
The recall applies to several beverage products packaged in various formats under many different brand names, which may be seen on the FDA websiteas well as product codes and expiry dates.
Affected brands are Oatly, Stumptown, Lyons Ready Care, Lyons Barista Style, Pirq, Glucerna (original 8-ounce tetra cardboard club case, sold only at Costco, BJ’s Wholesale Club, and Sam’s Club), Aloha, Intelligentsia, Kate Farms , Premier Protein, MRE and Imperial.
Although Cronobacter sakazakii infection is rare, common symptoms of the disease can include fever, vomiting and urinary tract infection, the recall says.
Vulnerable and immunocompromised populations may be more susceptible to infections. All 53 products were distributed nationwide.
To date, there have been no reported illnesses or complaints related to these products, the company says.
“The recalled products should not be consumed.”
Products did not meet sterility specifications
According to a preliminary root cause analysis, the products did not meet commercial specifications for sterility, the company said.
The company is not currently the subject of any legal action over the recall, but Top Class Actions is closely monitoring the recalls as they sometimes lead to class action lawsuits.
“Anyone who has a recalled product in their possession should dispose of it immediately or return it to the place of purchase for a refund,” the recall reads.
Meanwhile, Nestlé faces a class action alleging false advertising of its BOOST Glucose Control drinks as being for the prevention and treatment of diabetes could result in “substantial societal harm” if not stopped.
