A company called Nutrition Express has voluntarily recalled specific products containing whey protein isolate sourced from one supplier because they have the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella.
Healthy persons infected with Salmonella often experience fever, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain. A limited number of products were sold between December 1, 2010 and February 17, 2011.
About 450 bottles of powdered protein were sold at two retail health food stores only (Lindberg Nutrition located in Torrance and Manhattan Beach), both in Los Angeles County, California. Notice of the recall was immediately posted at both stores. The only other sales channel was a direct-to-consumer channel from Nutrition Express, the exclusive distributor of these products.
The products were shipped directly to consumers in the United States via Federal Express or the U.S. Post Office. All consumers, who bought through this direct channel, were immediately sent letters on February 22, 2011 by Nutrition Express regarding the specific recalled product that they purchased.
