TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) - A company is expanding a recall of its organic shake product because of potential salmonella contamination, according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

Garden of Life LLC is expanding its product recall of its Raw Meal "Organic Shake and Meal Replacement" that comes in Chocolate, Original, Vanilla, and Vanilla Chai flavors.

An ingredient used in certain batches of the product could possibly be contaminated with salmonella, the company said in an FDA announcement released on Saturday, Feb. 13.
