Some whey protein powders are recalled

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration announced the recall of Publix-brand GreenWise chocolate and vanilla whey protein powder due to a labeling error.

The FDA said the recall was initiated because the powder might contain undeclared milk ingredients, posing a health hazard for people with milk allergies.

The recalled powders -- with expiration dates of 05/2012 or 06/2012 -- were distributed to Publix stores in Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, Alabama and Tennessee.

The products may be returned for a refund. Consumers with questions can contact the company at 800-242-1227.
