Edy's Grand Ice Cream Has Recalled Limited Edition Girl Scouts Samoas Cookie Ice Cream

Oakland, CA (SafetyAlerts) - The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) said that Edy's Grand Ice Cream has recalled 5,000 cartons of its Limited Edition Girl Scouts Samoas Cookie Ice Cream distributed in Columbus (Ohio), and parts of Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, Tennessee and the Florida panhandle, because the ice cream may contain peanuts which are not identified on the label. The peanuts may be found in the ice cream, not the cookie pieces.

Only individuals who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to peanuts may run the risk of serious or potentially life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume this product. People with a peanut allergy or sensitivity to peanuts should not consume the ice cream and should immediately dispose of the product.

The potentially affected cartons of Edy's Girl Scouts Samoas Cookie Ice Cream are the 1.75-quart size and have a code date of 48-18-42 09 20 AL. The code date can be found on the bottom of the carton.

No other Edy's ice cream products are affected.

No consumers have reported symptoms of allergic reaction. Edy's is working with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in implementing this voluntary product recall and is investigating the incident. Edy's is also working with the Food Allergy and Anaphylaxis Network to alert consumers in the affected areas.

Consumers should send the bottom of the carton to Edy's Grand Ice Cream, Consumer Relations, 5929 College Avenue, Oakland, California 94618, for a full refund. Consumers with questions may call Edy's Consumer Call Center at 1 888 837-4438.
