Kemps Foods Has Recalled Vanilla Ice Cream

(SafetyAlerts) - The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) said that Kemps Foods has recalled 1/2 gallon containers of Hagan Pennsylvania Vanilla Ice Cream because it contains Peanut Butter Ice Cream. People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to peanuts run the risk of serious or life threatening allergic reaction if they consume this product.

The product was distributed in West Virginia, Western Maryland, Eastern Ohio, and Pittsburgh and Western Pennsylvania, through retail stores.

The product comes in a l/2 gallon seround (oval 1/2 gallon) paper container that is labeled Pennsylvania Vanilla, but the lid of the container is labeled Peanut Butter Bender. The product inside the container is Peanut Butter Bender Ice Cream. The product code is 0952 and is marked on the bottom of the container.

No illnesses have been reported to date in conjunction with this problem.

The recall was immediately issued after the peanut containing product was distributed in packaging that did not reveal the presence of peanuts. Investigation indicates that the problem was caused by a packaging error during the production process that has been corrected.

Consumers who have purchased this product are urged to return to the place of purchase for a full refund. Consumers with questions may contact the company at 1/800-247-6269
