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.


The Slim Fast product affected by the recall are 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.
