Café Grumpy’s current ready-to-drink cold brew with best before dates of 8/20/23 and 8/21/23 is unaffected by the voluntary recall of Lyons Magnus

NEW YORK, NEW YORK, USA, Aug. 12, 2022 / — A number of coffee drink and oat milk brands produced by catering company Lyons Magnus have been recalled due to the potential for microbial contamination, including the organism Cronobacter sakazakii, in which preliminary root cause analysis shows that the products did not meet commercial specifications for sterility.
As specified by Café Grumpy and the Food and Drug Administration’s recall notice, this action only affects Café Grumpy products with one of these lot codes printed on the packaging: Lot 4211 Best By 8/27/22 , Lot 5211 Best By 8/28 /22.

No other lot codes or other Cafe Grumpy products are involved in this action.
Café Grumpy ceased working with Lyons Magnus in May 2021 and has had no relationship with them since then. All Café Grumpy Ready to Drink cold brew is now processed by Flow Hydration at their Virginia facility. Customers can also see that this current Café Grumpy cold brew has new packaging, which sets it apart from last year’s inventory. The current product manufactured by Flow Hydration is not impacted by the recall in any way.
“We take any production issues extremely seriously and, as a small, independent company, closely monitor all of our coffee, from beans grown on closely-knit family farms to the roasting process at our local factory in Brooklyn, New York. , want to be sure our customers see their expectations exceeded with each of our Café Grumpy products,” said Caroline Bell, Founder and Owner of Café Grumpy. “We are no longer working with Lyons Magnus for the production of our range of ready-to-drink cold ales and can assure our loyal customers that any Café Grumpy drink in our beloved cafes is safe and delicious.”
Café Grumpy thanks its customers for their understanding, their time and their patronage!
