Soylent's New Meal Replacement Bars Are Making People Sick

2016-10-13 14:57:521 Oct 2018 01:53 AM EST

The food of the future seems to have hit a bit of a roadblock. Soylent, a brand of bioengineered meal-replacement products that boasts “all of the elements of a healthy diet,” announced yesterday that its newest offering—a food bar that launched in August—is making people sick. Consumers recently began posting concerns on the company’s forum, citing episodes of vomiting, diarrhea, and becoming “violently ill” after consuming the bars. Eater and other media sites reported the news last week, noting that similar threads had also been reported on Reddit. The company instructed consumers to throw away any bars in their possession, and said that it was temporarily halting sales and shipping of the product.
“It has recently come to our attention that a small number of our customers have experienced gastrointestinal issues after consuming Soylent Bars,” the blog post states. The company said it has not yet identified a cause, and that refunds will be offered to customers via email.
Soylent’s bars were introduced as a new alternative to the company’s flagship product, Soylent Powder. The powder, which contains a patented blend of soy protein, algae oil, beet sugar, and other vitamins and nutrients, can be mixed with water “to create a nutritionally balanced meal that will satisfy you for hours,” according to the company’s website.
