Just a few days ago, Simply Thick, LLC announced the recall of some of its thickening products. This recall was initiated because according to the FDA, one of the plants where SimplyThick is manufactured, “failed to file with the FDA a scheduled process designed to ensure that vegetative cells (harmful bacteria) of possible public health significance are destroyed during the manufacturing process.” As a Weston Products Liability Injury Attorney, I wanted to discuss the recall of SimplyThick since I wrote about the FDA Warning a couple of weeks ago. The link to my post on the SimplyThick FDA Warning can be found here.
The recall only affects SimplyThick products that were manufactured at the Stone Mountain, Georgia plant owned by Thermo Pac, LLC. It seems likely that the FDA discovered this bacteria issue while conducting research with regards to the SimplyThick Warning. As a Weston Personal Injury Lawyer it will be interesting to see where this goes from here since this is the second issue with SimplyThick in just a few weeks. Certainly all of this negative news cannot be good for the company from a marketing and public relations standpoint.
For instructions on identifying the SimplyThick products made in Stone Mountain that are affected by the recall, you can check the FDA SimplyThick Recall Release here. It is not known at this time how many units are affected by this recall. From a Weston Injury Lawyer’s perspective, hopefully the issues with SimplyThick can be resolved and no more potentially dangerous products get into the hands of consumers. I’ll follow this recall for updates to see how things progress.
