Every Slim-Fast ready-to-drink canned beverage has been recalled for fear of contamination with the bacteria Bacillus cereus. The notice, posted on both Slim-Fast’s and the Food and Drug Administration’s websites, says this, “The recall involves all Slim-Fast RTD products in cans, regardless of flavor, Best-By date, lot code or UPC number."

Reportedly, those who have already consumed beverages have little need to worry because food poisoning by Bacillus cereus is fast acting, short-lived and relatively mild, with most symptoms being diarrhea, abdominal cramps and vomiting.

For more information on this recall, please see the FDA website at: www.fda.gov/Safety/Recalls/ucm192978.htm
