Unilever Recalls Canned Slim-Fast Products Because Of Bacterial Contamination

December 3, 2009: 08:56 AM EST
The discovery of bacterial contamination has led Unilever United States to launch a nationwide recall of all Slim-Fast ready-to-drink products in cans, regardless of flavor, best-by date, lot code, or UPC number. The products are packaged in paperboard cartons containing four, six or twelve 11-oz.steel cans. The voluntary recall, in cooperation with the FDA, was prompted by discovery of Bacillus cereus, a bacterium, which may cause diarrhea and possibly nausea and/or vomiting. The probability of serious adverse health consequences, however, is remote, the company said, adding that it is identifying and correcting the production issue that led to the problem.
