Protein Bars Recalled for Potential for Foreign Material

( – Protein bars are a popular way for athletes, professionals, and others to stay full and energized throughout the day. They are also a great meal replacement for people who are trying to shed a few pounds. Unfortunately, a company has recalled some of their protein bars.

On November 28, Doctors Scientific Organica announced a voluntary recall of its Burn Boot Camp Afterburn Grass-Fed Whey Protein Bars. They have 60 grams of protein and are triple chocolate almond-flavored. The company isolated three batches of the bars and said they could potentially contain material that is not edible, including shrink wrap, parchment paper, and disposable hairnets. The recall announcement warned that the objects could cause injuries to a person’s gastrointestinal system and transient choking.

The bars in question were sold online through its website and Burn Boot Camp retail locations. The recall didn’t include any other flavors or varieties. The bars that were recalled have lot numbers 184, 181, and 187. These are printed on the back of the foil wrapping of each bar and the bottom of the cardboard case.

Doctors Scientific Organica warned consumers they should not eat the products from the lot numbers in question. If they purchased the bars, they should either destroy them or return them to the store of purchase for a refund.

No injuries or illnesses have been connected to the protein bars. However, the company said it took the step to recall the bars after several consumers reached out about the problem.

The company stated that their top priority is “[t]he quality, safety, and integrity” of their products. They apologized to customers for the inconvenience that the recall caused.

Consumers can call the company at (786) 749-1221, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Eastern Time Monday through Friday, if they have any questions. Doctors Scientific Organica is located in Riviera Beach, Florida.
