Certain protein drinks are being recalled by manufacturer HP Hood due to the potential for premature product spoilage.

The recalled products include plastic bottles of 14-ounce and 10-ounce MUSCLE MILK Genuine, MUSCLE MILK Pro Series, and MUSCLE MILK 100 Calorie products. The products have best-by dates of November 21, 2016 through May 23, 2017, with an HS in the code date. These dates are printed on the top of the lid of single-serve bottles.

For UPCs, see the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) release.

Consumers may notice that, in some cases, the packaging is bloated and product inside may have an off taste or odor. Consumers should not use these products but should return them to the place of purchase for an exchange.

No confirmed reports have been received of any consumer illness to date.
