Our LAP-BAND Specialist in Wichita passed along information this morning about the Food and Drug Administration's announcement of a voluntary recall of several protein-based supplements.
Many LAP-BAND and REALIZE Band Patients use protein supplements, so this could be important to some of our readers.
According to the FDA release, Universal Nutrition is recalling specific lot numbers for Gain Fast, LAVA, Real Gains, Super Whey Pro, Torrent, Ultra Mass 4500, Ultra Whey Pro and Uni-Syn. The products contain some whey protein that was potentially contaminated with Salmonella.
If you currently use any of these products, please read the full release for details.
