Cincinnati, OH—The Kroger Co., in cooperation with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), voluntarily recalled certain containers of Kroger Deluxe Chocolate Paradise Ice Cream. The FDA announced the recall on Thursday, June 10, 2010, due to allergen hazards associated with undeclared tree nuts.
The product safety recall was initiated after it was discovered that packaging for several types of ice cream failed to list tree nuts as an ingredient. Consumers with allergies to tree nuts may run the risk of suffering a severe or life-threatening allergic reaction if they eat any products affected by this particular recall.
According to the FDA, the manufacturer recalled “Kroger Deluxe Chocolate Paradise Ice Cream sold in 48-ounce containers with a “sell by” date of Jan 24 11 under the following UPC Code: 11110 50712. This is the only sell-by date affected by this recall.”
The potentially hazardous ice cream was available for purchase in the following states: Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michigan, Mississippi, Missouri, North Carolina, Ohio, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia and West Virginia.
The product was also made available at Jay C, Food 4 Less, Hilander, Owen’s, Pay Less and Scott’s stores in Illinois and Indiana. Kroger-operated stores using different banner names are not affected by the recall.
Consumers who have purchased the recalled products are urged to return them to the place of purchase for a replacement product or full reimbursement.
