Garden of Life Shakes and Meals Recalled Due to Salmonella Risk

On January 29, 2016, Garden of Life LLC issued a recall of certain Raw Meal Organic Shake & Meal Chocolate, Original, Vanilla and Vanilla Chai products because they have the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella.

Salmonella is an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Salmonella infection can produce fever, diarrhea (which may be bloody), nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain. In rare circumstances, infection with Salmonella can result in the organism getting into the bloodstream and producing more severe illnesses such as arterial infections (i.e., infected aneurysms), endocarditis and arthritis.
