Kerber Dairy Issues Allergy Alert on Undeclared Egg and Wheat in Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough and Chocolate Brownie Fudge Ice Cream

(SafetyAlerts) - Kerber's Diary of North Hungtingdon, Pennsylvania is recalling half gallons of Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough and Chocolate Brownie Fudge ice cream because they may contain undeclared egg and/or wheat ingredients. People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to egg or wheat ingredients run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume these products.

This recall is being conducted with the knowledge of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and is being done because of a mislabeling issue. Other flavors are not involved.

Kerber's half-gallon containers of Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough and Chocolate Brownie Fudge were distributed to Irwin Shop 'n Save, Norwin Sparkle Market, Harrison City Festival Foods, and Oak Park Shop 'n Save.

No illnesses have been reported to date.

This recall was initiated after it was discovered that half-gallons of Kerber's Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough and Chocolate Brownie Fudge ice cream were distributed in containers that did not reveal the presence of egg or wheat ingredients. Subsequent investigation indicated that the problem is a mislabeling issue and has been corrected.

Consumers who have purchased half-gallons of Kerber's Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough and Chocolate Brownie Fudge ice cream are urged to return them to the store of purchase for a full refund. Consumers with questions may contact Kerber Dairy, Inc. at 724-863-6930.
