Popular Protein Snack Recalled for Foreign Material Risk

(NewsSpace.com) – Every now and then, manufacturers issue recalls for products when they find that there is something faulty or if contaminants have gotten into a food item. These bulletins are issued to protect the general public from adverse risks such as illness or injury. The FDA recently issued a bulletin for a voluntary recall of a popular protein bar.

On November 29, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) posted a company announcement from Doctors Scientific Organica, which sent out a voluntary recall of one variety of its Burn Boot Camp Afterburn Grass-Fed Whey Protein Bars. The company warned that its 60-gram Triple Chocolate Almond flavor bars might have foreign material inside, including pieces of parchment paper, shrink wrap, and disposable hairnets. These foreign objects could pose a risk for minor injuries, including, but not limited to, “gastrointestinal system injury” or “transient choking.”

The potential contamination was limited to three batches of the product, with the lot numbers 181, 184, and 187. Customers could find these identifiers on the back of each individual bar and on the box they came in. The products were sold both online and in Burn Bootcamp retail locations around the country.

Those who bought the bars are advised not to consume them. They could either destroy them or return them to the point of purchase, where they are eligible to get a full refund. They could also reach the company’s customer support by calling 786-749-1221 Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. EST.

As of the time of writing, there have been no injuries or illnesses reported by any customers. Some, however, had contacted Burn Boot Camp about the issue. The company has pledged to work with the FDA and “cooperate with them fully” and noted that it’s number one priority remains the “quality, safety, and integrity” of its products.
