A packaging error is believed to be the cause of the issue, which has caused some bottles to bloat and have an off taste or odor, according to the Food and Drug Administration.

Muscle Milk Genuine, Muscle Milk Pro Series, Muscle Milk 100 Calorie, with Best By dates of Nov. 21, 2016 through May 23, 2017, with an ‘HS’ in the code date. The “best buy” and code dates are printed on the top of the lid of single-serve bottles.

No confirmed reports have been received of any consumer illness caused by the recalled products.
