Lyons Magnus LLC, a foodservice manufacturer based in Lyons, California, announced a voluntary recall of 53 beverage products due to possible microbial contamination on July 28, 2022.

Among the potential contaminants reportedly in the products is the organism Cronobacter sakazakii. Infection due to this organism rarely occurs, but potential symptoms could include vomiting, fever, and urinary tract infection.

Immunocompromised and vulnerable populations may be at a higher risk for infection.

Among the nationally distributed products pulled in the recall were varieties of Lyons’ Ready Care (dairy), Barista Style (non-dairy), Pirq (plant-based), Glucerna (flavored dairy), Aloha (flavored non-dairy), Oatly (oat-based), and Premiere Protein beverages.

The recalled products don’t include any of Lyons’ beverages for infants (under age 1).

According to the Lyons announcement, the products were pulled (in cooperation with the US Food and Drug Administration) because they “did not meet commercial sterility specifications.” The announcement also stated that, “To date, no illnesses or complaints related to these products have been reported.”

Consumers should check the list of recalled products and dispose of any in their possession, or return them to the place of purchase for a refund. The company said consumers can call 1-800-627-0557 or visit its website with any questions.
