The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has issued a nationwide recall on cans of Slim-Fast ready to drink beverages because of a possible contamination with Bacillus cereus, a microorganism that can cause infected people to suffer from diarrhea, nausea and vomiting.
The recall involves all Slim-Fast ready to drink beverages in cans, regardless of flavor, best-by date or UPC number, the FDA said. No other Slim-Fast products are affected by the recall.
The company is in the process of identifying and correcting the production issue and will resume production and shipment as soon as the problem is remedied.
Consumers who have recently purchased ready to drink Slim-Fast beverages in cans are urged to discard them immediately and contact the company at 1-800-896-9479 for a full refund.
