Turkey Hill recalling mislabeled ice cream

- Turkey Hill Dairy announced a voluntary recall of some containers of its Dutch Chocolate Premium Ice Cream. The problem is the 48 oz. packages may contain Rocky Road Premium Ice Cream instead of Dutch Chocolate Premium Ice Cream.

According to the company, the packages may include undeclared ingredients of almonds and eggs, and that could be harmful to people with food sensitivity or allergies to them.

The recalled product is Dutch Chocolate Premium Ice Cream, size 48 oz., with a UPC code of 20735-42095 and a sell-by date of May 23, 2017, found printed on the bottom of the package.

All affected packages would’ve been bought after Sept. 8, 2016. All affected stores have been told to remove the product from their shelves and Giant confirmed to FOX 29 News it has.

Turkey Hill Dairy has not received any reports of illness concerning this product recall. It adds, there is no safety issue for consumers who are not allergic to almonds or eggs.

Giant reports, “Symptoms of food allergies typically appear from within a few minutes to two hours after a person has eaten the food to which he or she is allergic. Allergic reactions can include: hives; flushed skin or rash; tingling or itchy sensation in the mouth; face, tongue, or lip swelling; vomiting and/or diarrhea; abdominal cramps; coughing or wheezing; dizziness and/or lightheadedness; swelling of the throat and vocal cords; difficulty breathing; loss of consciousness.”

If you purchased the recalled product, you can return it to the store for a full refund or call Turkey Hill Dairy at 1-800-MY-DAIRY (693-2479) for a replacement or refund.
