May 25, 2001Friendly Ice Cream Recalled in
MA (SafetyAlerts) - Friendly Ice
Cream Corporation is voluntarily recalling its half gallon packages of all varieties of
"Candy Shoppe® Sundae" ice cream because they may contain undeclared egg
whites. People who have allergies to egg whites may have an allergic reaction, including a
serious or life-threatening allergic reaction, if they consume these products.
The recalled "Candy Shoppe® Sundae" products were distributed in supermarkets,
convenience stores and Friendly's Restaurants in the states of MA, ME, RI, CT, VT, NH, NY,
NJ, PA, OH, VA, MD, DC, FL, TN, IN, WV, MI, NC and SC.
The products come in a half-gallon package marked with an expiration date prior to March
4, 2002, embossed in the form of "04Mar02" or "Mar0402" (or earlier)
or inkjet printed in the form of "25-26 WC5 020304 (these six digits indicate
Year-Month-Day) 00000" or earlier. To date, one minor reaction following consumption
of the product has been reported.
The company initiated the recall after it was discovered that the egg white containing
product was distributed in packaging that did not reveal the presence of egg whites.
Subsequent investigation indicates the problem was caused by an error in the company's
package printing process that has since been corrected.
Consumers who are allergic to egg whites and have purchased half-gallon packages of
"Candy Shoppe® Sundae" ice cream may return them to the place of purchase for a
full refund. Consumers with questions may contact the company at 1-800-723-1591.
