On April 3, the FDA announced that Hi-Tech Pharmaceuticals had voluntarily recalled 13 of its nutritional supplements due to potential allergen contamination.

As such, “People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to specific type of allergen (milk, eggs, wheat & soy) run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume these products,” the FDA reports.
