FRESNO, Calif. – August 10, 2022 – Lyons Magnus LLC (“Lyons Magnus” or the “Company”) today
announced that following continued collaboration and consultation with the U.S. Food and Drug
Administration (“FDA”) and in furtherance of its longstanding commitment to food safety, the Company is
expanding its July 28, 2022, voluntary recall of nutritional and beverage products to include additional
brands and code dates. A complete list of the recalled products is in the table below. Consumers also are
advised not to consume any products that are beyond their Best By date.
This recall is being conducted due to the potential for microbial contamination, including from the
organisms Cronobacter sakazakii and Clostridium botulinum. Although Clostridium botulinum has not
been found in products, consumers are warned not to consume any of the recalled products even if they
do not look or smell spoiled. 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.
Clostridium botulinum may cause a severe form of food poisoning. It can begin from six hours to two
weeks after eating food that contains the toxin. Symptoms may include double vision, blurred vision,
drooping eyelids, slurred speech, difficulty swallowing, and muscle weakness. Botulism poisoning can
cause respiratory paralysis, resulting in death, unless assistance with breathing (mechanical ventilation)
Root cause analysis indicates that the products did not meet commercial sterility specifications.
The products are packed in various formats under many different brand names, which are listed in the
table below. 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. Some products were distributed nationally, while some
products were limited in scope. Products included in the recall were distributed starting in April 2021.
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 in all time zones with questions may contact the Lyons
Recall Support Center 24/7 at 1-800-627-0557, or visit its website at www.lyonsmagnus.com. This recall
is being conducted in cooperation with the FDA.
