The Food Standards Agency (FSA) says: “This makes the product unsafe to consume. Some of these products were found to contain levels of caffeine at levels that could be fatal.”

Home Bargains has stores across London.

The recall affects 1.5 kg bags of Sci-Mx Nutrition Ultra Muscle Strawberry Flavour with batch codes W11042, W110430 and W110431. The best before date is March 2025.


The FSA says: “Too much caffeine can produce anxiety, sleeplessness, agitation, palpitations, diarrhoea and restlessness. Individuals with a mental health condition can experience worsened psychosis and result in the need for higher amounts of medication. Caffeine can reduce how well your antipsychotic medications work.

“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.”

Sci-Mx Nutrition refund

If you have bought the product it should not be consumed. Instead, the Sci-Mx customer careline should be contacted at [email protected] to arrange a refund.
