ucm605567 375x92 LeanPro9 Protein Powders recalled due to undeclared allergenLabrada Nutrition is recalling more than a dozen lots of its LeanPro8 Protein Powder because the supplements may contain undeclared egg protein, which could cause serious or life-threatening allergic reactions in people who are allergic to egg protein.

No illnesses related to undeclared egg in these supplements have been reported to date.

The recall was initiated after a state inspection revealed that the egg-containing product was distributed in packaging that did not list the presence of egg. A subsequent investigation indicated the problem was caused by an incorrect version of the formula being used during production. Labrada Nutrition has since suspended production until the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the company can confirm the problem has been corrected.

Anyone who has purchased these products are urged to return them to the place of purchase for a full refund.
