A recall has been issued for RAW Meal Organic Shake & Meal Replacement products made by Garden of Life after a salmonella outbreak has been confirmed.

Customers should discard the products and contact Garden of Life for a refund.
In the past couple years, the United States has been overwhelmed with the number of product recalls issued. Manufacturers are required to produce consumer goods that are safe and free from defects to ensure the health safety of their customers. Unfortunately, these manufacturers are often negligent in producing a safe product resulting in thousands of injuries sustained by consumers annually. Food, toys, electronics, pet products, and vehicles are all examples of goods that have been recalled after an injury or death has already occurred. According to product liability laws, a victim of a dangerous or defective product is entitled to compensation for their damages. If you have suffered an injury, illness, property damage, or lost a loved one due to a manufacturer's negligence, is imperative to contact a product liability attorney to determine if you are eligible to file the case.
