Is there a reason that a whey protein shake has the 'not for pg/nursing mothers' disclaimer??

Are there things I should avoid in these drinks???

The artificial sweetener?

I found this:

Q: Is whey protein safe for pregnant women and children?

A: Whey protein is a complete high quality protein and should be an acceptable protein source for healthy pregnant women and children, provided they are not allergic to dairy proteins. The second most abundant component in whey protein is alpha-lactalbumin, which is one of the main whey proteins in human breast milk. Infant formulas often contain whey protein, including special formulas for premature infants. Prior to taking whey protein, both pregnant women and parents of young children should consult a physician to be sure whey protein is right for them.

Probably the individual product is marketed as a "nutritional supplement" rather than as a "food" and they're covering their by including the typical blanket "do not use if pg or nursing" statement.
