If you drink protein shakes, iced coffee, or cold brew, listen up! Several well-known, popular brands are recalling products, and you’ll want to check your supply.

Lyons Magnus, the company that produces brands like Premier Protein and Stumptown Coffee, has issued a recall due to the potential for microbial contamination.

The recall was issued July 28 in cooperation with the Food and Drug Administration. In the recall notice, the FDA said the products, “did not meet commercial sterility specification.” Specifically, they could contain Cronobacter sakazakii.

The organism is unlikely to cause illness, but if it does, you could experience fever, vomiting, and urinary tract infection. Those who are vulnerable and immunocompromised might be more likely to experience infection.

In total, 53 products have been recalled by Lyons Magnus, and they include items from the following brands:

  • Lyons Ready Care
  • Lyons Barista Style
  • Pirq
  • Glucerna
  • Aloha
  • Intelligentsia 
  • Kate Farms
  • Oatly
  • Premier Protein
  • MRE
  • Stumptown
  • Imperial

If you have these brands, you’ll want to check your pantry or fridge for the specific products, and you can head to the FDA website for the full list which includes lot codes and expiration dates. For those who do have one of the recalled products in the home, the FDA recommends disposing of it immediately or return it to the place of purchase for a refund.

For those who have found themselves big fans of proffee in the morning, you might want to switch up your brands.
