"It has recently come to our attention that a small number of our customers have experienced gastrointestinal issues after consuming Soylent Bars," the statement reads, which is the polite way of saying people couldn't stop throwing up and having diarrhea all over the place. "As a precautionary measure, we are halting all Soylent Bar purchases and shipments and are advising our customers to discard any remaining bars in their possession."
Just a company doing the right thing and making sure its customers... oh, just kidding. Last week, Soylent told Vice, "After these reports, we have retrieved remaining bars from our consumers and have personally consumed many of the remaining bars without adverse effects. We have also sent them for further microbiological testing and all tests have come back negative. Based on this we remain very confident in the safety of the bars." That's a pleasant image, a bunch of Soylent employees chowing down on their own bars, waiting to see if an onslaught of diarrhea comes.
