Home Bargains recalls popular protein drink due to health fears

Home Bargains recalled the Sci-Mx Nutrition Ultra Muscle Strawberry Flavour due to the “high levels of caffeine that have been found in the product”.

“This makes the product unsafe to consume,” the retailer explained and urged customers to return the item.

The Food Standards Agency explained that too much caffeine can produce “anxiety, sleeplessness, agitation, palpitations, diarrhoea and restlessness”.

“Individuals with a mental health condition caffeine can experience worsened psychosis and result in the need for higher amounts of medication.”

It added: “Caffeine can reduce how well your antipsychotic medications work.”

The food site continued: “Children, or other people sensitive to caffeine, should only consume caffeine in moderation.

“Pregnant and breast-feeding women are advised not to have more than 200mg of caffeine over the course of a day.”

The Food Standards Agency advised customers to contact Sci-Mx customer careline at [email protected] for a full refund and urged shoppers to “not consume the product if you have bought it”.
