Recalls seem to be popping up everywhere. This one seems to be one of the biggest recalls. New Years resolutions are coming at a rapid speed but unlike past years, people won’t be reaching for this weight loss shake!
Although the company says the chances are “remote,” Unilever is working with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to urge people nationwide not to consume its ready-to-drink cans because of a potential contamination with Bacillus cereus, a micro-organism, which may cause diarrhea, nausea and vomiting (source).
Keep in mind that this recall only affects the “ready to drink” shakes. The bars and powdered shakes have not been contaminated. This company doesn’t seem to be having the best track record this year; earlier they had the recall on all products containing peanuts.
