Glucerna, Oatly among 53 drinks recalled for possible microbial contamination

Lyons Magnus, which produces nutritional drinks and coffee in its own name as well as Oatly, Glucerna and Premier Protein, has announced a recall of 53 products due to possible microbial contamination, the Food and Drug Administration announced over the weekend.

“Preliminary root cause analysis shows that the products do not meet commercial sterility specifications,” the FDA said in the recall notice, adding that no illnesses had been reported as of Friday.

Among the FDA’s concerns: Cronobacter sakazakii contamination. The agency cited fever, vomiting and urinary tract infections as common symptoms.

Over 50 drinks affected by Lyons Magnus’ summons.

However, in more serious cases, Cronobacter sakazakii can cause bloodstream infections and meningitis. Infants, the elderly over 65, and people with weakened immune systems are most likely to develop serious illness, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Customers with questions about the recall are asked to call Lyons’ 24-hour support call center line at 1-800-627-0557. Products can be returned to the venue or purchased for a refund.
