Federal Office warns: XXL recall of six protein shakes due to lethal content

Protein shakes are often meant to supplement a full meal and aid in weight loss and weight control. Like protein shakes, the meal drink is often sold in powder form and then blended yourself. This is also the case for the drink powder affected by the recall.

These are products sold throughout Germany, among others in the DM and Müller pharmacy chains, as well as in the Kaufland and Globus supermarkets. Foreign bodies have entered the drink powder. The company cannot exclude the possibility that metal parts have found their way into its product.

They can measure less than a millimeter in diameter and 1.0 to 1.5 cm in length. They are said to have entered the drink powder through a pre-supplier.
