Third-Party Manufacturer Voluntary Recall

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 

As it pertains to Oatly products, the scope of this expanded recall remains very specific and is exclusively limited to distribution in North America of four SKUs made within a defined production window and manufactured at Lyons Magnus. 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.  


Aside from Oatly products listed below with corresponding best by dates and facility codes, this recall does not impact any other Oatly products, including any products 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.
