Orgain Protein Powder Recalled Due to Allergen Risk

On October 4, 2023, Orgain LLC issued a recall of four lots of the company’s Organic Protein Powder + Superfoods, Creamy Chocolate Fudge flavor protein powder after a co-manufacturer informed the company that the product contained undeclared sesame, which is now one of nine food allergens required to be listed on supplement labels.

People who have an allergy or sensitivity to sesame should not consume these products, as they may cause potentially life-threatening allergic reactions.

Recalled Organic Protein Powder + Superfoods, Creamy Chocolate Fudge flavor protein powders (see product photos) were distributed between September 8-28 to Costco warehouses in Alabama, Alaska, California, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Missouri, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Puerto Rico, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, Vermont, Washington, Washington D.C., and Wisconsin. They are packaged in 43.8 oz/2.64 lb. white plastic containers with the lot number and expiration date printed on the bottom. Products can be further identified by the following:

  • Lot #: 3212 EL 14, Exp. Date: 7/31/2025
  • Lot #: 3213 EL 14, Exp. Date: 8/1/2025
  • Lot #: 3214 EL 14, Exp. Date: 8/2/2025
  • Lot #: 3228 EL 14, Exp. Date: 8/16/2025

Costco has notified its members who purchased affected products between September 8-28. Orgain LLC recommends that consumers return unused products to Costco for a full refund.
