Prolab Recalls Several Protein Products Over Improper Labeling

CHATSWORTH (CBS) — San Fernando Valley-based Prolab Nutrition, Inc. has recalled several protein supplement products that may contain wheat, gluten or other ingredients not listed on the labels.

The company issued a news release Saturday warning those with an allergy or severe sensitivity to Brazil nuts, cashews, chestnuts, eggs, hazelnuts, peanuts, pecans, pine nuts, tree nuts, sulfites, walnuts or gluten allergens may run the risk of a serious or a life threatening allergic reaction if they consume some Prolab products.

Prolab initiated the recall immediately following the discovery that labels of some of its protein food did not reveal the presence of wheat and gluten allergens in the products, said Jenia Khudagulyan, chief operating officer for Prolab’s parent company.

According to the company, the recalled products may include some two and five-pound containers of “Advanced Pure Whey Protein,” “Pure Whey,” and “Whey Isolate Protein” in milk chocolate, vanilla creme and wild strawberry flavors.

They were sold in California and 33 other states, as well as in Australia, Canada, Malaysia and Russia.

More information, including exact product codes, can be obtained by calling the company at (800) 262-8765.

The company said the only problem with the protein was the improper label. It said full refunds are available from the place of purchase.

    This is why you have to avoid most off the shelf nutrition products. Buy from someone you trust who represents a company with a long track record of results, science, and safety. Buy from someone who uses the products.

    There are so many nutritional products on the market where the what’s on the label isn’t in the product or there is too much or too little, where the ingredients aren’t bio-available (aren’t absorbed), or the ingredients aren’t active (short shelf life). For example, CoQ10 is a fat soluble molecule that generally isn’t bio-available in a water based environment like the human body. Another example is calcium from oyster or other ‘shells’ that aren’t abosorable or aren’t absorable in amounts that support bone heatlh.

    In summary, work with someone who is knowledgeable and don’t by from radio commercials, big box stores, local chain pharmacies, chain nutrition stores.

Critical thesis area categories included in the website and a one and only search not two colors our times – it’s either oyster-white or orange. Has evident header gist is a harmonious ‘, equal of a philanthropic topic sitting precisely in the nude on summit of the pages links. Elegant.
