Slim Fast recalls diet drink

Posted: Friday, August 04, 2000

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. - Slim Fast Foods is recalling more than 1 million cans of three popular diet shakes, saying the drinks may make people ill.

The drinks, manufactured in Covington, Tenn., were recalled after hundreds of consumers complained of an ``off taste'' and five people reported getting sick, the company said.

``There was a flaw in the manufacturing system, which allowed some incorrect balance of ingredients,'' said John Gould, a spokesman for parent company Unilever in New York.

Consumers can return 11-ounce cans of Creamy Milk Chocolate, Cappuccino Delight and Strawberries and Cream flavors for a full refund to stores where the beverages were purchased, according to a company hotline. The hotline number is (877) 424-4180.

The lot numbers being recalled are:

Creamy Milk Chocolate - ETMC-0125e, ETMC-0138e and ETMC-0142e.

Cappuccino Delight - ETCD-0138e and ETCD-0142e.

Strawberries and Cream - ETAS-0125e, ETAS-0140e and ETAS-0141e.
