Soylent is pulling its meal-replacement powder from the market in light of trickling reports of customer illnesses. -snip–
In an online blog post Soylent said:
For the past several weeks, we have worked aggressively to uncover why people were having these negative experiences. This has included product testing, an exhaustive industry search, and discussions with many of our suppliers. Our tests all came back negative for food pathogens, toxins or outside contamination… Interestingly, we didn’t see similar complaints during the 1.5 formulation. This possible connection allows us to narrow the field considerably given there are only a few ingredients that are specific to only our bars and Powder 1.6.
Ars reached out to Soylent to ask what those ingredients are, but we haven’t received a response yet.
