Important New RAW Meal Update

Posted On: February 10, 2016 By: David Cabrera Categories: Misc.

Dear Garden of Life customers,

We wanted to provide you with an update on the ongoing investigation linked to our recall of various RAW Meal products. For a list of the LOTS affected by the recall click here.

We continue to work closely with the FDA to retest all of our RAW Meal products,as well as the individual ingredients used to create RAW Meal, for a potential contamination. These are made in Utah by a leading manufacturer who also is cooperating with the FDA to assist them in their investigation.

We learned today that health officials in Utah and Oregon tested opened containers of the product from two of the 11 people who have reported becoming ill and found Salmonella.

Tests are also being performed on the closed containers taken from store shelves, from our manufacturer’s retained samples and from our own warehouse, and we expect those results to be available within the next few days.

We are working diligently with the FDA and other parties to understand the cause of the reported Salmonella cases and will continue to keep you updated as we learn more. We apologize for any inconvenience this has caused and we are working swiftly to correct this situation.

Brian Ray, President
