Soylent Powder Recalled Due to Allergen Risk

On April 24, 2017, Soylent issued a recall of 890 boxes (containing 7 x 15 oz pouches) of Soylent 1.8 Powder, because the product may contain undeclared milk.

People with an allergy to milk should not consume this product as it could cause a serious or life-threatening allergic reaction.

Recalled Soylent 1.8 Powder can be identified by the following:

  • SKU: 1WK-V10
  • Lot #: G7076PA
  • Expiration / Best Buy date: 02/2018

( tested and reviewed another Soylent product, drinkable Soylent in its 2016 Review of Meal Replacement Powders & Shakes).

Promoted as a "plant-based and protein-rich" snack, the bars contain soy protein isolate, rolled oats, whole algal flour, maltodextrin, sucralose, and other ingredients, including a variety of vitamins and minerals. 

In 2015, environmental-health watchdog group As You Sow filed a notice of intent to bring legal action against Soylent after tests found Soylent powder to contain levels of lead and cadmium which exceed California's Prop 65 limits (products which exceed these limits are required to bear a warning on the product label).    

See's Nutrition Bar Review for tests of related products.
