According to the FDA, "Unilever United States, Inc., in cooperation with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), 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 recall involves all Slim-Fast® RTD products in cans, regardless of flavor, Best-By date, lot code or UPC number."  Therefore, please do not use any of these products. 

If you have purchased Slim-Fast ready-to-drink products in cans, you are urged to throw them out immediately.  You are also encouraged to contact the company at 1-800-896-9479 for a full refund.
