Important RAW Meal Announcement

Posted On: January 29, 2016 By: David Cabrera Categories: Products

Dear Garden of Life consumers:

We want to make you aware that Garden of Life has voluntarily withdrawn a limited quantity of our RAW Meal Organic Shake & Meal Chocolate, Original, Vanilla and Vanilla Chai products from the marketplace. Over the past week, there have been several reported cases of Salmonella Virchow, and some of those people also reported consuming a RAW Meal product with an expiration date in September and October 2017. Even though the routine testing performed on the products before they were shipped to stores shows they are clean and free from any contamination, as the leader in the industry, we are taking this action out of an abundance of caution.

We are committed to producing the highest quality products and sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this recall may have caused. Following is a list of lots affectedby this withdrawal. Any RAW Meal product from a lot code not listed below is entirely safe and not affected  by this recall.
