Prolab Proactively Recalls Some Protein Products in Order to Correct Labeling for Items That May Have Undeclared Wheat and Gluten

PROLAB NUTRITION INC. (PROLAB) is recalling some of its protein items that may contain undeclared milk, wheat and gluten allergens. People with an allergy or severe sensitivity to milk and/or wheat and gluten allergens may run the risk of a serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume products containing these allergens. For this reason, below is a list of the protein products that PROLAB is proactively recalling, although no illnesses or discomfort has been reported to date:

PROLAB initiated this recall immediately following the discovery that the packaging label of some distributed protein items did not reveal the presence of milk and/or wheat and gluten allergens in the products. PROLAB’s product manufacturer, Nature’s Products, Inc. (NPI), informed PROLAB that the raw material NPI used to manufacture the abovementioned products were not properly labeled.

According to Jenia Khudagulyan, Chief Operating Officer for PROLAB’s parent company, "PROLAB values consumers and their health, and it is the company’s goal to accurately convey what its products contain in order to ensure that consumers’ health is protected at the highest possible level. We discovered that some PROLAB protein items were not properly labeled for milk and/or wheat and gluten allergen content, and we immediately took precautionary measures by proactively recalling the affected products which will be re-released at a later date with corrected labels.

It sounds like your hives resolved. I had a six month bout with them. Antihistamines really helped. My doctors are not sure if Mast Cell or autoimmune is the root cause.

My kid has Raynauds. It freaks her classmates out. She wears shoes and wool socks all year round and we live in a warm state. It is autoimmune. She manages it by layering, turning up the heat, use lots of blanket throws. I have Hashimoto?s and celiac disease. So, having multiple autoi...

Well, you do need to replace some things because they are too porous or damaged to remove gluten. Things like old wooden spoons, scratched non-stick pans, toaster, colander, sponges, etc. Honestly, the list is long, so try getting a few celiac books at the library or Amazon. Consider reading t...

When I woke up from my Endoscopy and was told I definitely had celiac disease the first thing I asked my doctor was do I need to get all new kitchen stuff? He assured me that I did not, and as long as my pots and pans and everything else was washed after being used to cook gluten I would have no ...

They have all given you good advice. Like Ennis_Tx said this is not medical advice. Just some observations. Ennis_Tx mentioned already a good B-complex. But people who have Perncious Anemia low B-12 have "Pens and Needles' feeling in their extremities. Mine was much more ...
