Chances are, you probably have tried Slim-Fast at least once in your life. If not to lose weight then to at least taste what all the fuss is about! However, it may concern you to know that Slim-Fast (or Slimfast) recently found itself in a precarious situation because of possible bacterial contamination in its products. 
 
Slim-Fast voluntarily ordered a product recall of all its “ready-to-drink” canned shakes effective December 3. This product recall included all cans regardless of flavor or even “best-by” date. The company urged its customers to continue using snack and meal bars as well as powdered shake mixes as replacements.
 
According to the Food and Drug Administration, there was a possibility that cans were contaminated with Bacillus cereus. This bacterium is known to be harmful and could cause painful and dangerous symptoms of infection like nausea, vomiting and diarrhea. Though this infection isn’t believed to be life threatening, it is unknown how it can affect consumers with sensitive digestive or immune systems.

MSNBC is reporting that some toys carrying the Barbie and Disney logos have been found to have high levels of lead. The Center for Environmental Health, a consumer advocacy group, ran tests on approximately 250 toys and found that seven of them violated federal standards for lead levels.
