Last week, Odwalla Inc. voluntarily recalled the Odwalla Chocolate Protein Monster beverage because customers with peanut allergies have experienced severe allergic reactions after consuming the drink. The company is recalling the 12-ounce and 32-ounces bottles of the beverage, that have an “enjoy date” of May 23, 2012. The drink was sold at stores throughout the country.
People who have allergies or a severe sensitivity to peanuts or tree nuts could have a serious or life-threatening reaction if they consume the beverage.
USA Today reports that Odwalla and the Food and Drug Administration are investigating the cause of the allergic reactions because the beverage does not contain any peanut or tree nut ingredients.
