The recall is isolated to 3 batches of Burn Boot Camp Afterburn Grass-Fed Whey Protein Bars Triple Chocolate Almond flavor products manufactured by Doctors Scientific Organica, officials say.
Reason For Recall
The bars were recalled due to the "potential presence of foreign material, including disposable hairnet, shrink wrap and parchment paper," officials say.
"Foodborne foreign objects that are flexible and not sharp may cause minor injuries such as transient choking or gastrointestinal system injury," the FDA stated in its recall notice.
"Destroy" Recalled Products
"Consumers who have purchased Burn Boot Camp Afterburn Grass-Fed Whey Protein Bars (60 grams) Triple Chocolate Almond flavor products with lot codes 181, 184 and 187 should not consume the product and should return the product to the location where it was purchased or destroy it themselves."

The recalled food is distributed through Burn Bootcamp retail locations and online throughout the U.S.
No other Doctors Scientific Organica products, including other varieties or flavors of protein bars, are involved in this recall.
