Company Announcement

Labrada Nutrition of Houston, TX, is recalling specific lots of its "LeanPro8" Protein Powder because they may contain undeclared egg protein. People who have allergies to egg protein run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume these products.

The recalled "LeanPro8" was distributed nationwide in retail stores and through mail orders.

The product comes in a 2.2 lb and 5 lb tub marked on the bottom of the tubs with the following lot numbers:

Lean Pro 8 Vanilla 2,268g (5lb) Tub (UPC # 710779112834) Lot# 073437

No illnesses have been reported to date in connection with this problem.

The recall was initiated after it was discovered during a state inspection that the egg-containing product was distributed in packaging that did not reveal the presence of egg. Subsequent investigation indicates the problem was caused by an incorrect version of the formula being used during production.

Production of the product has been suspended until FDA and the company are certain that the problem has been corrected. Consumers who have purchased said tubs of "LeanPro8" are urged to return them to the place of purchase for a full refund. Consumers with questions may contact the company at 1-800-832-9948 Monday thru Friday, 9am-5pm Central Time.​​​​​​​
