Soylent food bars recalled

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency says Rosa Foods Inc. is recalling Soylent food bars after some consumers became sick.

It doesn’t say what caused the illnesses, how many people are involved or how serious their illnesses are.

Soylent is an engineered food that is marketed via the internet as a drink, as powder, coffee or food bar.

The company website says “all of our products use bioengineered algae as a source of lipids and essential omega fatty acids. Produced efficiently in bioreactors, rather than on farmland, these single-celled organisms require far less resources than traditional agriculture.”

Only the food bars are under recall now.

There is nothing about the recall on the website of the Public Health Canada Agency.
