Unilever Conducts Nationwide Recall of Slim-Fast Ready-to-Drink Products in Cans Due to Possible Health Risk

Unilever United States, Inc. is conducting a nationwide voluntary recall of all Slim-Fast ready-to-drink (RTD) products in cans, 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.


The products are packaged in paperboard cartons and contain four, six or 12 steel cans that are 11 FL OZ (325 ml) each.  Individual cans were also sold in certain retail outlets.  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.  No Slim-Fast powdered shakes, meal bars, or snack bars are affected by this recall.


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 – Friday, 8:30 AM – 6:00 PM ET.  A recorded message is available 24/7.

Schnucks and Logli customers may return the specified product to their nearest store for a complete refund or exchange.
