Slim Fast Recall by Unilever

Written under: Health

Unilever, together with the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), is conducting a nationwide voluntary Slim Fast recall of the ready-to-drink 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.

However, the recall is only voluntary because the probability of serious adverse health consequences is remote.
