Conestoga, PA (SafetyAlerts)
The Food and Drug
Administration (FDA) said that Turkey Hill Dairy has recalled Ѕ gallon (64
oz./1.89L) packages of Cookies 'N Cream Ice Cream with the code date
"13JAN04X" because they may contain peanuts. People who have allergies to
peanuts run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if
they consume these products.
The recalled Cookies 'N Cream Ice Cream was distributed in the
Baltimore/Washington D.C. area.
The product comes in a cream-colored, rounded rectangular paperboard Ѕ
gallon package with farm scene and ice cream scoop graphics. It is in a
Cookies 'N Cream Ice Cream container that has a Tin Roof Sundae lid with a
red rim, and is marked with "13JAN04X" on the bottom. Although peanuts are
listed on the lid, they are not listed on the ingredient statement.
No illnesses have been reported to date in connection with this problem.
Upon investigation, this appears to be an isolated incident and corrective
actions have been taken to prevent recurrence.
