Lyons Magnus, a nutritional drinks company, expanded a voluntary recall of some varieties of popular products. The company said in a statement on July 28 that no illnesses or complaints related to recalled products had been reported. The recall includes the oat drink Oatly, Optimum Nutrition protein powder and Glucerna shakes.

FDA posts a list of 89 products involved in the recall. Some of the recalled products were distributed nationally, the company says. The company did not say whether anyone had been sickened. The products did not meet “commercial sterility specifications,” the company said.

The recalled brands include varieties of Organic Valley milk and Stumptown Cold Brew Coffee. The company said that the recalled products could potentially be contaminated by harmful organisms that included Cronobacter sakazakii and Clostridium botulinum. Officials did not immediately reply to requests for comment.

Clostridium botulinum is a bacterium that makes dangerous toxins. The symptoms of Cronobacter sakazakii, which is rare, can include fever, vomiting and a urinary tract infection. Consumers are warned not to consume any of the recalled products even if they do not look or smell spoiled.

Clostridium botulinum can bring on illness anywhere from six hours to two weeks after eating contaminated food and could be deadly. Symptoms can include impaired vision, drooping eyelids, slurred speech, difficulty swallowing and muscle weakness. It can be deadly if left untreated.
