Soylent Recalls New Soylent Bar

In an inauspicious start for the newest product from Los Angeles-based alternative food startup Soylent, the company said last night that it is recalling all of its new "Soylent Bar" products, and asking its customers to "discard any remaining bars in their possession". The company said the recall comes after a "small number" of its customers have "experienced gastrointestinal issues" after consuming the bar. Soylent just launched the new product a month ago. Soylent said the issue "does not appear" to affect its other drinks and powder. Soylent's somewhat controversial products are aimed at allowing people to mostly or entirely skip eating real food.
