Third-Party Manufacturer Voluntary Recall in USA

One of our contract manufacturing partners in North America, Lyons Magnus– at the direction and in cooperation with the FDA - announced an expansion on August 10, 2022 of their original July 28, 2022 voluntary recall to include additional brands, products and best by dates. This expanded recall is being conducted due to the potential for microbial contamination, including from the organisms Cronobacter sakazakii and Clostridium botulinum. Although Clostridium botulinum has not been found in products produced by Lyons Magnus to date, consumers are advised to dispose of any recalled products, even if they do not look or smell spoiled. Details about these organisms can be found in the Lyons Magnus press release here.

 

Limited Impact for Oatly Products in the US

As it pertains to Oatly products, the scope of this expanded recall performed by Lyons Magnus remains very specific and is exclusively limited to four SKU's made within a defined production window, manufactured at Lyons Magnus and distributed in North America. These include our aseptic 32oz Barista Edition Oatmilk (in slim packaging with a flat top) and our 11oz Barista Edition, Original and Chocolate Oatmilks. The easiest way to determine if your products are affected is to check for the initials "LM" beside the package's best-by date. For more information, see images and details below.

 

If a consumer is in possession of any SKUs with best by dates inclusive of facility code LM, they should dispose of the product or return it to the retailer from where they bought it and request a refund.

Voluntary and Preemptive Recall in China

Lyons Magnus also manufactured one Oatly product for distribution in China, Oatly Oat Drink Deluxe 330ml, which was imported in accordance with the provisions of the inspection of Chinese authorities, and in full compliance with relevant regulations. Nevertheless, to ensure the safety of our product, we sent samples of Oatly Oat Drink Deluxe 330ml to the State accredited laboratories in China for testing. Test results received to date have not identified any microbial contamination in Oatly Oat Drink Deluxe 330ml and there have been no reports of illness or health complaints related to this product. As a company people rely on to eat better and live healthier lives, food safety and the health of our consumers are paramount. We have therefore decided to do a voluntary and preemptive recall of Oatly Oat Drink Deluxe 330ml in China, even though our products are in compliance with relevant Chinese regulations.

Other Markets Not Affected

Aside from Oatly products listed below for distribution in North America with corresponding best-by-dates and facility codes, and the specific product mentioned above for distribution in China, this recall does not impact any other Oatly products, including those produced outside of North America.

 

The well-being of our consumers remains our utmost priority. Oatly has terminated all future business with Lyons Magnus and they will no longer formulate and fill products under the Oatly name.
