Lyons Magnus LLC is voluntarily recalling nutritional and beverage products due to the potential for microbial contamination, including from the organism Cronobacter sakazakii. This recall is being conducted in cooperation with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

The list of recalled products does not include products intended for infants (i.e. under the age of one).

While infection related to Cronobacter sakazakii is rare, the common symptoms of illness could include fever, vomiting and urinary tract infection.

However, vulnerable and immunocompromised populations may be more susceptible to infection. To date, no illnesses or complaints related to these products have been reported.

The recalled products should not be consumed.

Brands include Lyons Ready Care, Lyons Barista Style, Pirq, Glucerna Original (sold at Costco, BJ’s Wholesale and Sam’s Club), Aloha, Intelligentsia, Kate Farms, Oatly, Premier Protein, MRE, Stumptown, and Imperial.

To identify the lot code and best by date refer to the top of the carton for individual cartons or the side of the case for multi-carton cases. The 53 products were distributed nationally.

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.

Consumers with questions may contact the Lyons Recall Support Center (800) 627-0557, or visit its website at www.lyonsmagnus.com.
