The Food and Drug Administration announced a recall of all Slim-Fast ready-to-drink products in cans. Unilever, the manufacturer, says the weight loss shakes may be contaminated with Bacillus cereus, a micro-organism that can cause diarrhea, nausea or vomiting.

You can find the full list of products here.

If you have any of these cans you should toss them and contact the company at 1-800-896-9479 for a full refund between 8:30 a.m. and 6 p.m. ET Monday through Friday.

The problems were discovered during a quality test and Unilever says it is conducting this recall just to be safe.
