A collagen protein product with the phrase “Fountain of Youth” in its name has been recalled because there may be undeclared milk.
People who have a milk allergy or sensitivity could face serious or life-threatening allergic reactions if they consume the products, a U.S. Food and Drug Administration recall notes.
BUBS Naturals of Encinitas, California, has recalled two lots of its Fountain of Youth Formula Collagen Protein products that are sold in 10.16-ounce containers and distributed through the BUBS Naturals online store, Amazon, and some grocery stores and The Vitamin Shoppe nationwide.
The recall was triggered on Dec. 3 because the MCT oil powder ingredient in the collagen protein product contains an undeclared milk allergen.
As of the recall date, there have been no reports of illness involving the BUBS Naturals products.
People use collagen supplements for several reasons, including to improve skin health or relieve joint pain, according to Healthline.
