Also, more products or lot numbers and expiration dates have been added to some of the brands in the original recall, such as Premier Protein, MRE and Oatly.

Two of the brands in the expansion (Ensure Harvest, PediaSure Harvest) and one brand in the original recall (Glucerna Original) come from Abbott Nutrition, the same Abbott Nutrition of the national baby formula formula crisis after an infant and tested positive for Cronobacter sakazakii.

Although cronobacter fears were the reason for the original recall in this case, Lyons Magnus is the manufacturer making the products for its own Lyons brands, the three Abbott brands and all the other brands now included in this recall.

And, in addition to Cronobacter sakazakii bacteria, the recall notice by Lyons brought up the deadly bacteria Clostridium botulinum that causes botulism.

“Although Clostridium botulinum has not been found in products, consumers are warned not to consume any of the recalled products even if they do not look or smell spoiled,” the Lyons-written, FDA-posted recall expansion notice said. “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.”

As for what happened, Lyons said, “Root cause analysis indicates that the products did not meet commercial sterility specifications.”

The recall notice includes the full list of the lot numbers and expiration dates involved in this recall. Here are the brands with products added to the recall and the brands with products previously recalled, but have products or lot numbers added.
