Vega One Recall

This seems like the appropriate area...

Health Canada says it should be recalled the owner of Vega One says "never!!!"

So you'll still see it on store shelves

The product contains Chloramphenicol

Vega One nutritional shakes in two flavours have been found to be contaminated with a prescription drug, Health Canada says.

Testing by Vega, previously known as Sequel Naturals, of Burnaby, B.C., showed the antibiotic chloramphenicol in its Vega One Vanilla Chai (437 g and 874 g formats) and Vega Sport Performance Chocolate products.

"Sequel Naturals Ltd. is refusing Health Canada’s request to recall these products despite the potentially serious risks posed to health," the regulator said Friday.

"Health Canada is also requesting that wholesalers, distributors and retailers voluntarily hold on to any Vega One Vanilla Chai and Vega Sport Performance Chocolate currently in their possession."

In rare cases, chloramphenicol is associated with the risk of developing aplastic anemia. The condition is a serious blood disorder and it can be fatal.
The owner of Vega One says there's a Honey product out there which contains the same percentage of Chloramphenicol and it was allowed to be sold so he's refusing to pull his product claiming that such a small dose won't cause any side effects

Problems for Vega products

Vega products have been subject to recalls before. The Canadian Food Inspection Agency issued two recalls of Vega-brand snack bars earlier this year, saying the bars might contain milk — which was not declared on the label.

In February, Vega voluntarily recalled Vega One French Vanilla nutritional shake, after tests by Health Canada showed bacteria that could be risky to people with weakened immune systems

However, Chang told the CBC that Vega will not be recalling the nutritional shakes in question this time around and says the company is being unduly persecuted.

"That's the worst thing that could possibly happen because whether it's a real issue or not — look what happens. It's like blackballing us without having the information."

In his online video, Chang says it has sourced a new supplier of enzymes free of chloramphenicol and has stopped distributing any products containing the drug.

The company is also offering a full refund to any customers wishing to return the shakes in question.

I got a sample pack of this stuff a while back (not the ones that are part of the recall) but this stuff is just horrible.
