Canada/Ottawa: Nu Skin Canada Inc. has recalled all batch/lots of its ageLOC TR90 Protein Boost Supplements due to undeclared Milk, a known allergen, source of dietary intolerance and possible trigger of Anaphylaxis, a serious and potential fatal situation, requiring immediate medical intervention. CFIA: http://ht.ly/b5pB308wJZ2
The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (“CFIA”) reports the following Dietary Supplements are subject to this recall:
- ageLOC TR90 Protein Boost Supplement, sold in plastic canisters in Canada with the batch numbers AZ30751 and AZ32051.
Please consult the photograph above for details of the Supplement’s packaging, design and retail presentation.
==> No barcodes, UPCs, item numbers or other identification numbers were listed with this recall notification.
According to the CFIA, Nu Skin Canada Inc. has recalled all ageLOC brand TR90 Protein Boost Supplements from the marketplace because they contains Milk, an ingredient not declared on the product label. People with an allergy to Milk should not consume the recalled product identified above.
According to the FDA, Protein Boost was designed as a vegetarian product and has the phrases, “lactose free” and “does not contain milk” printed on the label. This recall was initiated after Nu Skin discovered that the flavoring used in the recalled Supplements contains buttermilk, an ingredient that Nu Skin Enterprises says constitutes approximately 0.1% of the overall product formulation.
==> For information about Milk Allergy or Lactose Intolerance, please consult the “Allergens & Intolerances” tab at the top of this page.

Instead, return the product to the store where you purchased it for a full refund.
==> Never depend on your senses of sight, smell, taste or touch to confirm food poisoning, adulteration or contamination. If in doubt about the safety of any food, return it to your retailer for refund or toss it out in your household garbage, making sure neither small children nor household pets can access the suspect food.
