Honey Stinger Recalls Some Protein Chews Due to Reported Nausea and Vomiting

In a statement released yesterday by Honey Stinger, Honey Stinger recalled some protein chews due to “several consumer reports of nausea and vomiting shortly after consuming the Protein Chews.”

Honey Stinger noted that nothing more serious than the nausea and vomiting has occurred, and that the complaints are unusual because “they occur very soon after consuming the Protein Chews, and because we have been unable to find any pathogen or undeclared allergen in product testing to date.”

The press release continues:

“While the manufacturer of the Protein Chews and EN-R-G Foods both continue to exhaustively test the product at accredited laboratories, the health and satisfaction of our consumers remains the most important thing we have.  In an abundance of caution, and while we continue to investigate these complaints, consult with regulators and await further laboratory analysis, we want to take every interim measure we can to preserve our customers’ health, trust and loyalty.  Accordingly, after consulting with the United States Food & Drug Administration, we are asking that you DO NOT EAT and DISCARD any Honey Stinger® Protein chews you may have while we continue our investigation. We will be glad to replace the product with other, unaffected Honey Stinger® products. If you purchased these products from a retailer please return the product to the store.”
