Nutritional and Beverage Products Recalled

 

The Rhode Island Department of Health (RIDOH) is advising consumers that the company Lyons Magnus is recalling nutritional and beverage products due to the potential for microbial contamination, including from the organism Cronobacter sakazakii.

 

The products are packed in various formats under many different brand names, including Lyons Ready Care, Lyons Barista Style, Pirq, Glucerna Original, Aloha, Intelligentsia, Kate Farms, Oatly, Premier Protein, MRE, Stumptown, and Imperial. Product details are listed in a table online. To identify the Lot Code and Best By Date refer to the top of the carton for individual cartons or the side of the case for multi-carton cases. The products were distributed nationally, including to Walmarts and BJ Wholesale Clubs in Rhode Island.

 

A preliminary analysis indicated that products did not meet commercial sterility specifications.

 

While infection related to Cronobacter sakazakii is rare, the common symptoms of illness could include fever, vomiting, and urinary tract infection. However, vulnerable and immunocompromised populations may be more susceptible to infection. To date, no illnesses or complaints related to these products have been reported. The recalled products should not be consumed.

 

Anyone who has a recalled product in his or her possession should dispose of it immediately or return it to the place of purchase for a refund. Consumers in all time zones with questions may contact the Lyons Recall Support Center at 1-800-627-0557, or visit its website at www.lyonsmagnus.com. This recall is being conducted in cooperation with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

 

 

 
Hurricane Ian is only 55 miles from the Florida Gulf Coast with maximum sustained winds of 155 miles an hour, just two miles an hour under Category 5 strength. More than a million people are under mandatory evacuation orders with hurricane and storm surge warnings in effect along hundreds of miles on Florida's west coast.       Forecasters say Hurricane Ian could dump heavy rain on Florida for days after it makes landfall later this afternoon or this evening. The storm is expected to slow to a crawl once it comes onshore, pouring out as much as two feet of rainfall in some areas. The National Hurricane Center said on Tuesday that Ian could march through Florida from today through Friday.        The Senate voted on Tuesday to take up a stop-gap bill to keep the government funded through mid-December as a Friday deadlines looms to avoid a shutdown at midnight Friday. The stopgap bill would keep the government running until December 16th.       Voting referendums in Russian-occupied parts of Ukraine appear to have been rigged. CNBC says election officials went door-to-door with portable ballot boxes in occupied regions of eastern Ukraine and that the results show an overwhelming majority voting to become part of the Russian Federation.        Several new California laws expand protection for abortion services and block other states from interfering in California abortions. New legislation Governor Gavin Newsom signed on Tuesday includes protections against being criminalized for pregnancy loss and expanded training options for nurse practitioners and midwives to perform abortions.        McDonald's will soon offer toys in "adult" meal boxes. The idea is to repackage the chain's popular Happy Meal into something for an older audience. Each meal comes with either a Big Mac or ten-piece McNuggets along with fries and a drink and either a Grimace, Hamburglar, Birdie, or Cactus Buddy figurine. The Cactus Plant Flea Market Box will be available starting on October 3rd.
