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
This recall is being conducted with the knowledge of the U.S. Food and Drug

flavors are not involved.

Brownie Fudge were distributed to Irwin Shop 'n Save, Norwin Sparkle Market,

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.
