Nutritech Corp. Issues Nationwide Allergy Alert on Undeclared Milk in "All One: Calcium Complex"
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE -- Santa Barbara, CA -- May 12, 2006 -- Nutritech Corp. of Santa Barbara, CA is recalling its 8.5 ounce jug of "ALL ONE Calcium Complex" with expiration dates of 03/06 through 06/07 food supplement because it may contain undeclared milk products. People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to milk products run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume these products.
"ALL ONE Calcium Complex" was distributed nationwide to distributors, in retail stores and through mail order.
The product comes in an 8.5 ounce, white plastic jug with a green label marked "ALL ONE Calcium Complex."
There has been one illness reported to date in connection with this problem.
The recall was initiated after a complaint alleging an allergic reaction from consumption of the product revealed it may contain milk derivatives and was being distributed without proper labeling. Subsequent investigation indicates that the problem was caused by a temporary breakdown of the company's lab testing processes.
Stores that carry "ALL ONE Calcium Complex" should remove the product from sale and return it to their distributor. Consumers who have purchased ALL ONE Calcium complex who have an allergy to milk are urged to return it to the place of purchase for a full refund. Consumers with questions may contact the company at 1-800-235-5727.
