Lyons Magnus LLC is recalling 53 nutritional and beverage products made under brands including Oatly, Stumptown and Pirq, as the products may have microbial contamination.
The recall notice was posted to the US Food & Drug Administration website July 29.
The recall applies to several beverage products packed in various formats under many different brand names, which can be seen on the FDA’s websitealong with product codes and best-by dates.
The affected brands are Oatly, Stumptown, Lyons Ready Care, Lyons Barista Style, Pirq, Glucerna (Original 8-ounce tetra carton 24 count club cas, sold only at Costco, BJ’s Wholesale Club, and Sam’s Club), Aloha, Intelligentsia, Kate Farms, Premier Protein, MRE and Imperial.
While infection related to Cronobacter sakazakii is rare, the common symptoms of illness could include fever, vomiting and urinary tract infection, the recall says.
Vulnerable and immunocompromised populations may be more susceptible to infection. The 53 products were distributed nationally.
To date, no illnesses or complaints related to these products have been reported, 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 sterility specifications, the company said.
The company is not currently facing legal action over the recall, but Top Class Actions follows recalls closely as they sometimes lead to class action lawsuits.
“Anyone who has a recalled product in his or her possession should dispose of it immediately or return it to the place of purchase for a refund,” the recall states.
Meanwhile, Nestle’s is facing a class action lawsuit alleging false advertising of its BOOST Glucose Control drinks as being for diabetes prevention and treatment could lead to “substantial societal harm” if it is unstopped.
