I've gone through roughly 4 tubs of Myfusion CnC...it's actually my favorite protein...I always noticed little sparkly flecks in it but never paid much attention until today...

WTF?

Saw this thing sticking out so I brought it to the top with tweezers...have found a second one as well...pretty disappointed...finally found a protein powder that I am in love only to find a piece of metal in it....

OP was it metal? or could it have been from the seal?

MY guess is that it is the seal. He probably opened it, and it got shaken up in the powder. If its not that than i think he is trolling us. But you never know. If rats can get into certain food, im sure a piece of hard aluminum metal type thing can get in there to.

I had another sealed tub and I opened it and took off the seal to compare the metal on the seal to the metal fragments I found in my protein; they are not the same. These pieces are a bit thicker than foil would be, they are still bendable, albeit not as much as foil.

Secondly when examining the tub for the lot # etc... I noticed that Myofusion is "A product of Canada." Had no idea! Anyhow. I have sent des an e-mail and trust that everything will be fine. As I stated in my e-mail to him, I genuinely hope that this was just some random fluke because I can't fathom having to hunt down another protein I care for as much as the Myo CnC.

Stuff like this can happen in a manufacturing environment. Could be a piece of aluminum machinery that needs changed out. It's a good idea to contact the company and let them know, but not usually a big deal. You should always pay attention to what's in your supplements and any other food product.


ETA: The larger concern I have is that OP said he usually notices flashy specs in his protein. That is what needs to be focused on.

I really think most are joking in a sarcastic way, at least I am. I mean come on? how does this get past quality control? Do they have quality control? Who is packing the product?

Because we let it happen, their are numerous supplement companies in the market its not a monopoly or oligiopoly. No hate on gaspari but they have came up alot just like muscle tech and ON had heavy metals etc. Yet we continue to buy their product at the same prices saying "it tastz good and I get teh gainz bruh" I mean come one does no body care about pressuring these companies to actually release a safe product. Creapure i.e. has 100 percent well 99 percent quality studies and posted on its label why can we not get the same for protein. I dont get it since its the stable of all nutrition for bodybuilding.

Yes, I expect that they can check every product they produce.

It's not to hard to check the raw ingredients for Myofusion. This is much different then searching for Salmonella where you can't see the contaminant. This is not "Rocket Science"

You know what I just bought my first tub of myofusion the other day and I noticed the shiny specs too. I kind of looked past it at first but after this thread I'm a little concerned to keep drinking it. Does anyone else notice flashy specs in their protein? Can any reps comment on it? I'm tempted to try and get a refund/exchange for a different protein.

I'm willing to bet that the op's case is an isolated incident and unrelated to the reflective specs (maybe something used for coloring or artificial flavoring), however I'm going to play it safe until a rep comes in and explains what part of the ingredient list is reflective like that.

Farley1324
04-08-2011, 12:53 PM
So what are these reflective specs? They are everywhere. They are not all the same size. There are a lot so big I can isolate them from the powder with my bare hands.

A quick picture I took after putting a small amount of product into the upturned lid. I circled some of the more significant specs.

http://i54.photobucket.com/albums/g105/austin3161324/45cc48b5.jpg


Now, somebody with tweezers and time (I will maybe do this later today after my wife gets home and tells me where we have tweezers...assuming we do) and myofusion go grab as many of the bigger specs as you can, separate them, and put them in a small amount of pure water to see if they dissolve. <---Useful idea?


Also, do you know what they look an awful lot like? Salt.

Anyway, for the noobs who don't know: The metal in Myo functions in a similar fashion to the Gold in Goldschlager. Tiny abrasions in your esophagus cause the protein to be more quickly transported to the muscles! DUH!!

You don't know anything about quality control if you think every tub of Myofusion is analyzed before it leaves the factory. Not going to get into the statistical theory, you can do that on your own. In fact this has to do with most mass produced products. It isn't "Rocket Science" but SPC is taught at the graduate level in Statistics and Industrial Engineering Programs so most people aren't going to understand it.

Sorry man but this is reality. Stay away from anything processed if this is your idea of "Quality Control."

I would assume that it all is inspected before going into the container. The metal could have fallen in during packaging. And it most likely isn't a human eye inspecting it.

I agree,I'm wrong in saying every product could be checked.

But would you agree that the raw ingredients could be checked? The production of this product doesn't even come close to say a Specific brand cereal where it would be impossible.

I also realize the product doesn't have to conform to pharmaceutical grade standard.

04-09-2011, 09:41 AM
I have always noticed little shiny specs in every type of protein I've taken. It's probably the protein itself or BCAA's or something along those lines. If you have another brand of protein laying around, I would check it to see if the specs are about the same before you go saying it's metal.

So Here's the deal....

This is a VERY series issue. VERY series.

I am no fan of Myofusion at all...however, Intrapro is definately one of my favorites.

It just so happens that my chosen "dork" hobby is metal detecting old battlefields, etc...

SO I had my trusty detector and equipment nearby ..

I am a true profession at this..so unless you are a true profession, donut try this at home...


http://i963.photobucket.com/albums/ae116/kevinarnold1956/md1.jpg

After running a serious of simple tests I, too, unfortunez, found teh medals in my Protein.


http://i963.photobucket.com/albums/ae116/kevinarnold1956/md2.jpg


It appears that my chocolate flaored IntraPro contained a Civil War era Horseshoe and some artillery shrapnel.

Gaspari, you have some explained to do.

Plus, should I pm you for free stuff to make up for it..or will you go ahead and contacting me..

Thanks

I have been in contact with a biomedical engineer over at Gaspari and I am going to send them the tub along with the fragments I found in my tub. Their communication throughout this matter has been spot on. As a side note I have continued to use Myofusion because I believe that my incident is likely an isolated one.

Of course many, perhaps even the Gaspari reps themselves, feel as though I should have left this issue to simply a PM or a phone call, without posting this thread; however I would hazard a guess that if I had found metal fragments in my Vasolate or Trutein, some of those same people would feel otherwise.

I don't believe any company can avoid minute issues such as this one; the real "story" here is not the fact that I found something in my protein, but rather the way in which Gaspari is handling the issue. And they are handling it impeccably as far as I am concerned.

Where in my post did I say there was metal in everyone's tubs? I am referring to the shiny specs. I just found it strange they haven't commented on it yet. But I think the other posters hit it on the head in which they probably have no idea.

Edit: I was thinking it was the wrapper or seal too because this recently happened to me with another protein, but I watched it fall in. Does Myo have a foil seal? I haven't had a tub in a couple months.

This has been an isolated incident, with no other concerns being brought to the attention of gaspari, at this point. Batch orders have been searched, and nothing has been found wrong.

Until gaspari receives the protein in the mail, and is able to do a full inspection, then the actual cause of the error cannot be pinpointed, since it's a possibly one time incident.

. I don't see this as an isolated incident. We are now talking about the shiny specs that all of us can see in our Myofusion. What are these shiny flakes???

No idea what the shiny crystals are - I can ask HQ

i would assume it's sweetner or maybe even the micro-encapsulated CLA, but I honestly dont know

I will update this post when I hear back


Will Myofusion cause me to have issues with airport security??

How can there be when they don't even have the product in question back at HQ yet? They have to get Rhet's tub first and do an investigation the right way. That takes time.

But seriously I remember reading about shiny flakes in an EAA/BCAA product in another forum. If I do remember it correctly rep said it was due to the leucine. I'll check if I can find the thread.

As per the label, there are no free form amino acids in Myofusion (there are in Intrapro).

I'd go ahead and order. Since this has happened, I have actually ordered 20lbs of Myofusion. It is still one of, if not my favorite protein. As I have stated before they have handled this situation as well as one would expect, and let us not forget, my incident is thus far the SOLE problematic incident IIRC.

We understand that they have great customer service and that they have solved your problem, but this is not the issue that we are talking about. We are still wondering what the shiny specs in Everyone's container are and gaspari hasn't answered us for three days now. I have 3 tubs of Myofusion that I'm not using until I know what those shiny specs are.

List of my proteins that have had shiny specks in them in the past,

Muscle tech - Nitro tech
Relfex - Instant Whey
Dymatize - Elite Whey
ON - Gold standard whey
BSN - Syntha 6

I noticed it from day one, and considering things like Creatine/Amino's and such tend to shimmer i really dont think it takes much to realize its probably OK. Chunks of metal, sure thats a problem, but little shiney specks in your protein...normal.

Well my deal with some past protein brand was it had some threads, some type of crystal I am guessing it was salt or sugar and hairs in them and the Vanilla brand I bought was strange, it had some blue dye specks in it (It wasn't Myofusion brand) It was Vitamin world brand called Precision Engineered. I didn't have the problem in just one batch, I bought 6 containers when they had 50 percent off entire purchase of vitamin world brand items and two of them had foreign objects in them.

I don't user their protein anymore, I only use Myofusion now. But even now I still sift any type of powder I use before I put it in the blender just to be safe.
