Soylent Recalls Powder, Again
Los Angeles-based food alternative firm Soylent has issued another recall of its Soylent Powder, after it found that its Soylent 1.8 Powder may have accidentally included milk in the product. The company said that a "small amount" of whey powder may have been incorporated into one production lot of Soylent 1.8 powder during manufacturing, saying that people who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to milk run the risk of "serious or life-threatening allergic reaction" if they consume the product. Luckily, for Soylent fans, the recall is less severe than an earlier recall in October, when its Soylent powder reportedly caused nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and other issues in customers. Soylent said the recall only included specific lots expiring in February of 2018. The company said the contamination of Soylent 1.8 occurred at its "third party facility" during manufacturing.
