No illnesses have been reported to date in connection with this problem.
The recall was initiated after it was discovered that the milk and soy allergen from Whey Protein was utilized by the manufacturer instead of a soy/milk free protein and therefore did not reveal the presence of the soy/milk allergen. Subsequent investigation indicates the problem was caused by a temporary breakdown in the company’s production and packaging processes.
Production of the product has been suspended until the company is certain that the problem has been corrected.
Consumers who have purchased these products are urged to return them to the place of purchase for a full refund. Consumers with questions may contact the company at 1-888-950-2190 Monday – Friday between the hours of 8:00 am to 5:00 pm PST.
