Major food brand recalls 53 food and beverage products due to possible microbial contamination

Lyons Magnus LLC says it is voluntarily recalling 53 food and beverage products due to concerns about possible microbial contamination.

According to a report from the FDA published on July 29, the possible microbial contamination comes from the organism Cronobacter sakazakii.

Cronobacter is a bacteria found in a variety of dry foods, including powdered infant formulas, powdered milk, herbal teas and starches, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention

.

Although Cronobacter diseases are rare, they can be fatal to infants and adults with weakened immune systems.

The 53 products under recall do not include products specifically marketed or intended for infants.

Recalled products include items under brand names such as Oatly and Premier Protein.

Anyone who owns these products should immediately throw them away or return them to the store for a refund, the FDA says.

Lyons Magnus develops and sells products in the foodservice industry, according to the company’s website.

A list of recalled products can be viewed on the FDA’s website.
