50+ products recalled by Lyons Magnus due to potential microbial contamination

Dozens of nutritional and beverage products manufactured by Lyons Magnus, and sold at stores nationwide such as BJ’s Wholesale Club, Costco, and Sam’s Club, have been recalled due to a potential microbial contamination. Aloha, Glucerna, Oatly, Kate Farms, these are just a few of the brand names the products were sold under. Presently, the belief is that not meeting commercial sterility specifications is what led to the contamination, and ultimately the recall.

A contamination by the organism Cronobacter sakazakii has not been ruled out by Lyons or the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. Cronobacter sakazakii was all over the news just a couple months ago because it was at the forefront of the baby formula recall. Leading to illnesses in numerous children, and causing at least 1 death. Cronobacter sakazakii is a bacteria that can cause severe infections. Cronobacter leading to sepsis and meningitis is not unheard of. Symptoms of newborns suffering from sepsis and meningitis include: poor feeding, crankiness, temperature changes, jaundice, and abnormal movements. Lyons makes it clear in their recall notice posted by the FDA though that no products for infants/babies have been recalled.
