Protein bars pulled from shelves after traces of hairnets, shrink wrap found inside


Select Burn Boot Camp Afterburn Grass-Fed Whey Protein Bars have been recalled due to the potential presence of foreign material.

The FDA posted a company announcement on Wednesday that the Triple Chocolate Almond flavor bars are being pulled from shelves after remnants of disposable hairnets, shrink wrap and parchment paper were found inside.

Protein bar maker Doctors Scientific Organica isolated the voluntary recall to three batches of the Triple Chocolate Almond bars.
