Slim-Fast recalls all ready-to-drink products in 11 FL OZ cans. Discard cans & call 1-800-896-9479 for a full refund

A nationwide voluntary recall of all Slim-Fast ready-to-drink (RTD) products in cans has been posted by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) due to the possibility of contamination with Bacillus cereus, a micro-organism, which may cause diarrhea and possibly nausea and/or vomiting. The probability of serious adverse health consequences is remote. Slim-Fast is a product of Unilever United States, Inc.

The products are packaged in paperboard cartons and contain four, six or 12 steel cans or individual cans that are 11 FL OZ (325 mL) each. The recall involves all Slim-Fast RTD products in cans, regardless of flavor, Best-By date, lot code or UPC number. No other Slim-Fast products are affected by this recall.

The recall was initiated after the company conducted quality testing on Slim-Fast RTD products in cans. Out of an abundance of caution, the company is recalling all RTD products in cans that are currently in distribution centers, on-shelf or in back rooms in retail outlets or in consumers homes. The company is in the process of identifying and correcting the production issue, and will resume production and shipment of the product when the issue has been addressed and corrected.

Consumers who have purchased Slim-Fast RTD products in cans are urged to discard them immediately and contact the company at 1-800-896-9479 for a full refund. The Consumer Services Center is open Monday thru Friday, 8:30 AM to 6:00 PM ET. A recorded message is available 24/7.
