FDA recalls Lyons Magnus nutritional products and beverages in US due to potential microbial contamination

Lyons Magnus LLC announced that following a collaboration with the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the company is expanding its July 28, 2022, voluntary recall of nutritional products and beverages to include additional brand names and code dates.

This recall is due to the potential for microbial contamination, including Cronobacter sakazakii and Clostridium botulinum organisms.

Through a statement, it is pointed out that although Clostridium botulinum has not been found in the products, consumers are warned not to consume them, even if they do not look or smell bad. The list of recalled products does not include products intended for infants (i.e., less than one year of age).

Although Cronobacter sakazakii-related infection is rare, common symptoms of the disease may include fever, vomiting, and urinary tract infection. However, vulnerable and immunocompromised populations may be more susceptible to infection.

Clostridium botulinum can cause a severe form of food poisoning. It can start 6 to 2 weeks after eating food containing the toxin. Symptoms may include double vision, blurred vision, drooping eyelids, slurred speech, difficulty swallowing, and muscle weakness.

Botulism poisoning can cause respiratory paralysis and death unless assisted breathing (mechanical ventilation) is provided.

FDA analysis indicates that the products did not meet commercial specifications for sterility.

To identify the lot code and expiration date, see the top box for single boxes or the side for multi-box boxes. Some products were distributed nationally, while other products were limited in scope. The products included in the recall were distributed as of April 2021.
