Recall roundup: protein powder, chicken products and sandwiches
Food and beverage products are recalled due to reasons ranging from contamination to incorrect labelling, and here is New Food’s roundup of the most recent cases.
New Capstone, Inc. recalls Restructure Vanilla Protein Powder
New Capstone, Inc. of Mooresville, NC is recalling their 22 oz ReStructure Vanilla Protein Powder pouches, and their 27-gram individual serving pouch, because they may contain undeclared milk. People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to milk may run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume these products.
ReStructure Vanilla Protein Powder was distributed via New Capstone’s website and shipped nationwide directly to consumers via an eCommerce website. No illnesses or reactions have been reported to date.
The recall was initiated after it was discovered that the new product pouch design omitted the clear statement that the product contained milk but rather just stated the product contained lactose. Subsequent to this discovery New Capstone, Inc. added a milk allergen warning sticker to all remaining packages in Lot 19211. New batches will include the allergen statement on the primary supplement facts panel of the packaging.
Consumers who have purchased ReStructure Vanilla Protein Powder may return it to New Capstone, Inc. for a full refund.
