For Immediate Release
January 28, 2017
NSE Products, Inc. is recalling all ageLOC TR90 Protein Boost because it contains milk in the formula, which is not declared on the label. People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to milk run the risk of a serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume this product. For consumers who are not allergic to milk there is no safety issue with this product.
Protein Boost has been sold in the United States and Canada through independent distributors to end consumers.
