The popular drink manufacturer Bolthouse Farms is voluntarily recalling their Protein PLUS shakes as well as Mocha Cappuccino drinks because they may be spoiled. The beverages have been reported to appear lumpy, taste unpleasant, or smell strange.
The recall was issued after the company received numerous accounts of illnesses and various complaints from consumers.
Around 3.8 million bottles have been distributed throughout the United States. The FDA advises that consumers not drink these beverages, but return them to the store for a full refund.
This recall includes Protein PLUS shakes with ‘best by’ dates between June 20th 2016 to September 18th 2016 and Mocha Cappuccino drinks with ‘best by’ dates from August 2nd 2016 to September 2nd 2016.
