As most customers know whey protein is derived from milk. True Nutrition shipped the above whey protein products beginning May 2nd 2012 without stating: whey is derived from 'milk' on their labels through a company printing mistake. This product recall notice has been initiated because said products contain milk ingredients but do not list on the labels that the ingredients are derived from milk.
If you are allergic or have extreme sensitivity to milk, you should discontinue use. In addition, if you may have further distributed this product, please identify these individuals and notify them at once of this product recall.
If you have any questions, call Carl Manes at 760-433-5376, Monday through Friday 8am to 4pm (Pacific Standard Time).
This recall is being made with the knowledge of the Food and Drug Administration.
