Bolthouse Farms is voluntarily recalling a selection of protein drinks due to possible spoilage that may cause the beverages to appear lumpy, taste unpleasant, and have an off odor.

The recall, which affects 3.8 million bottles that have been distributed nationally in the United States, includes Protein PLUS shakes with best-by dates between 6/20/2016 and 9/18/2016, as well as certain Mocha Cappuccino products with best-by dates of 9/2/2016 and between 8/2/2016 and 8/3/2016. The best by dates are printed on the cap and label at the neck of the bottle and the UPC appears on the bar code.

For specific product descriptions and UPCs affected by the recall, see the Bolthouse Farms release.

Consumers should not consume the affected products but should instead return them to the place of purchase for a full refund.
