NBCUniversal Media, LLC

Fifty-three nutritional and beverage products, including Premier Protein shakes, are subject to a recall due to the possibility of microbial contamination, according to an alert by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

The food manufacturing company Lyons Magnus LLC announced a voluntary recall of 53 products due to possible microbial contamination, including from the organism Cronobacter sakazakii.

Infections from the organism in question are rare, but vulnerable and immunocompromised populations may be more susceptible, according to the FDA.

"Common symptoms of illness could include fever, vomiting and urinary tract infection," the recall states. No illnesses or complaints have been reported.

The products, which were distributed nationwide, include items branded as Aloha, Glucerna, Intelligentsia, MRE Protein Shakes, Oatly and Pirq.

"Preliminary root cause analysis shows that the products did not meet commercial sterility specifications," according to the FDA.

Anyone who has a recalled product in their possession should dispose of it immediately or return it to the place of purchase for a refund.
