Over 50 Beverages Recalled for Potential Microbial Contamination

Early in August over 53 beverages were recalled for potential microbial contamination. These include nutritional beverages, coffee drinks, nut milks, and oat milks. In its recall notice, the FDA noted that preliminary root cause analysis shows that the products did not meet commercial sterility specifications.  A potential concern is Cronobacter sakazakii contamination with fever, vomiting and urinary tract infections being primary symptoms of illness. The recall may widen as more beverages are identified. As of Monday, there were no reported illnesses.
