Put down the Slim-Fast can -- regardless of flavor, sell-by date, etc.

Image
The maker of Slim-Fast has recalled all of its ready-to-drink canned beverages. All of them. Turns out, the stuff might be contaminated with the bacterium Bacillus cereus.

Here's the notice, posted on the Food and Drug Administration's website and the Slim-Fast site.

It contains the usual "discard immediately," "contact the company ... for a full refund" advice. It also includes a list of the specific products being recalled, but there may be no need to check. The notice also says this:

"The recall involves all Slim-Fast RTD products in cans, regardless of flavor, Best-By date, lot code or UPC number."
