The protein shake maker Lyons Magnus has recalled dozens of protein shakes and coffee products that may be contaminated with bacteria.
The recall affects products that were sold under 11 brand-names, including:
- Aloha Plant-Based Protein
- Glucerna Original (sold only at Costco, BJ’s Wholesale Club, and Sam’s Club)
- Sysco Imperial Med Plus & Thickened Dairy Drink
- Intelligentsia Cold Coffee & Oat Latte
- Kate Farms Pediatric Standard
- Lyons Barista Style Non-Dairy Beverage
- Lyons Ready Care
- MRE Protein Shake
- Oatly Oat-Milk Barista Edition (Food Service)
- Pirq Plant Protein
- Premier Protein
- Stumptown Cold Brew Coffee
The products may contain Cronobacter sakazakii, a bacteria that can live in very dry foods, such as powdered infant formula and powdered milk. It has also been found in sewer water.
The bacteria poses a particular risk to infants and people with vulnerable immune systems, according to the CDC.
In February 2022, a recall was issued for powdered baby formula due to a deadly outbreak of Cronobacter infections.
Lyons Magnus said there have been no reports of people getting sick or dying, but the “common symptoms of illness could include fever, vomiting and urinary tract infection. However, vulnerable and immunocompromised populations may be more susceptible to infection.”
Consumers who have any of the recalled products should throw them out or return them to the store for a full refund. For more information, call Lyons Recall Support Center anytime, 800-627-0557.
