FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - March 28, 2013 - Lifestyle Evolution Inc announces the voluntary recall of NuGO FREE, NuGO Dark and NuGO Slim Non Dairy bars Made BEFORE October 2012 because of the potential for undeclared milk.  Individuals with allergies to dairy run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume products containing milk protein.  Lactose intolerance is not a milk allergy and should not be confused with a milk protein allergy. Lifestyle Evolution’s voluntary recall is being conducted in consultation with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

The products were distributed nationwide.

ONLY PRODUCT WITH BEST BY DATE OF 2013 IS SUBJECT TO RECALL. (i.e. 25 Dec 13)

Distributors and customers that have purchased these products directly will be notified by Lifestyle Evolution, Inc. regarding product return procedures.
