FRESNO, Calif. (WXIN) – Protein shake maker Lyons Magnus is expanding its recall of food and beverage products that may be contaminated.
The company previously recalled 53 food and drink products because they may contain Cronobacter sakazakii bacteria. This germ can cause fever, vomiting, and urinary tract infections.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says infection with this germ can be very serious for the elderly and people with HIV, organ transplants, or cancer.
Cronobacter sakazakii was the focus of a baby food recall in February 2022. While the company said the product listing did not include anything for infants, it did include some products for children as young as 1 year old.
The products can also be contaminated with Clostridium botulinum. Although it hasn’t been found in the products, the company warns people against consuming them even if they don’t look or smell off.
This toxin can cause a severe form of food poisoning six hours to two weeks after ingestion. Symptoms can include double vision, blurred vision, drooping eyelids, slurred speech, difficulty swallowing and muscle weakness.
The publication stated that botulism poisoning can cause respiratory paralysis and death if respiratory assistance is not provided.
On August 10, the company announced it was expanding its recall to include additional brands and code dates. This includes 32 other products. Nearly 400 additional lot codes were added to the recall.
The expansion comes after continued collaboration and consultation with the FDA. The company says an analysis of the products showed they did not meet commercial sterility specifications.
They will be packaged in various formats under many different brand names and will be distributed from April 2021.
Anyone who possesses the recalled product should dispose of it or return it to where it was purchased for a refund. Anyone with questions can call the Lyons Recall Support Center at 1-800-627-0577. The company also encourages people not to consume products past their best purchase date.
The full list of recalled products can be found on the FDA website.
