Is it OK if I have Muscle Milk, a couple days before my colonoscopy?

I use Muscle Milk after my workouts at the gym. Tomorrow (Wednesday) is my regular day for going to the gym. This week Friday I'm going in for a colonoscopy. According to the paperwork from the clinic I shouldn't eat (or I would imagine drink, too) anything with iron in it. I've checked the packaging of the Muscle Milk and it lists iron at 0.3 mg per scoop; I use 2 scoops, so it would be a total of 0.6 mg of iron. Is that too much?
