Remember the Vital Proteins collagen supplement promoted by Jennifer Aniston, it may contain plastic fragments

The Food and Drug Administration has issued a recall on thousands of Vital Protein products, a collagen supplement widely advertised by stars like Jennifer Aniston and Kourtney Kardashian for possible contamination.
The Federal Agencies website says 59,701 containers of Vital Protein Collagen Peptides may contain foreign materials, particularly pieces of a broken blue lid.
Locations where tarnished products may have been shipped include Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Missouri, Wisconsin, Connecticut, Delaware, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Vermont, Alabama, Georgia, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Florida and Puerto Rico.
The recall was initiated on April 21, according to the site.
However, Aniston, 54, was still promoting the product on her Instagram days later.
The Friends alum shared a video of herself making a cup of coffee with vital protein blended on May 9.
It’s unclear if Aniston was aware of the recall or if she decided to terminate her partnership because of it.
Its representatives declined Page Six’s request for comment.
The Along Came Polly star has been a longtime advocate of the wellness brand.
In a July 2022 article posted on the Vital Proteins blog, the company noted that Aniston was its chief creative officer and used its products on a daily basis.
For more Page Six you love
I have had a passion for health and well-being for years. I know this topic can be overwhelming, so through this campaign, I want to showcase easy ways to incorporate collagen into your daily life, the Murder Mystery star told the site at the time.
For me, it adds it to my morning coffee and recharges after a workout, but there truly is an option for everyone.
Among the listed products used by Aniston was the original container of collagen peptides, which has since been recalled.
However, the beloved actress isn’t the only celebrity who has promoted Vital Proteins.
Kardashian’s wellness company Poosh previously partnered with the health brand to create a matcha-flavored collagen protein.
However, it appears the Kardashian star, 44, hasn’t partnered with Vital Proteins for some time since she launched her own supplement brand, Lemme, in September 2022.
Kardashian’s rep did not immediately respond to Page Six’s request for comment.
A spokesperson for Vital Proteins told Page Six in response to the recall that the health and safety of consumers is the company’s top priority.
In April, out of an abundance of caution and our commitment to product quality and consumer safety, we initiated a voluntary recall of a single lot code of Vital Protein Collagen Peptides at a limited number of Costco locations. and we’ve worked with Costco to notify both of their members who may have purchased the affected product and remove any potentially affected products from stores, the rep further explains.
To date, no injuries have been reported in connection with this recall. No other retailers or e-tailers are affected by this recall and no other Vital Proteins products are affected.
