AUDIENCE: Consumer, Health Professional
ISSUE: The nutraceutical company, Xymogen, (Orlando, FL) and FDA, is notifying consumers and health professionals of the recall of Atriphen, a product sold for the support of healthy joint function, because it contains the undeclared allergens, soy and milk.
BACKGROUND: Xymogen learned that Atriphen might contain the two allergens, immediately discontinued sale of the product and had a third-party laboratory test the product to confirm the presence of the allergens.
