Voluntary Recall for Ice Cream in Arizona
Posted on behalf of Phillips Law Group on Jan 16, 2013 in Defective Products
Arizona ice cream lovers must take caution before purchasing their next pint. Southwest Ice Cream Specialties, located in McKinney, Texas, has issued a voluntary recall of some of its Dulce de Leche ice cream containers. The company distributes this product to Arizona, amongst about six additional states, and all of those who have recently purchased this particular ice cream flavor should be cautioned.
While no reports of illness have surfaced, Southwest Ice Cream Specialties warns those with food allergies who have purchased any Dulce de Leche ice cream containers must be informed of the recall. In an unlikely mix up, the Dulce de Leche ice cream flavor may have been mixed with praline pecan ice cream. Praline pecan ice cream contains soy, wheat, and pecans, common food allergies amongst many.
The Dulce de Leche ice cream containers are 1.75 quarts and are labeled accordingly. However, those who have purchased this ice cream may lift the lid to find praline pecan inside. Because soy, wheat, and pecans are not listed as ingredients on the Dulce de Leche containers, any Arizona residents with food allergies are warned to refrain from eating the ice cream.
These products are sold in a variety of grocery stores throughout the state of Arizona. If you or a loved one believes that you have consumed this product with a food allergy, contact a doctor immediately.
