Turkey Hill, an ice cream company, has recently issued a voluntary recall notice for its Dutch Chocolate Premium Ice Cream. The ice cream subject to reclaim is due to mislabeling of its 48-ounce containers. Consumers are urged to either discard or return it for a refund.
Giant food stores have confirmed on Sunday that the Turkey Hill Dairy ice cream company have issued a voluntary recall. The product in question is the 48-ounce container of Dutch Premium Ice Cream. The recall is necessary because of a mislabeling of the contents of the container. Some packages of the previously mentioned type of ice cream may actually contain Rocky Road Premium Ice Cream.
The Rocky Road Premium Ice Cream contains eggs and almonds. These two ingredients are common allergens which because of the mislabeling, were not included on the list of ingredients on the label. However, the products do not pose any sort of danger to people who do not suffer from an egg or almond allergy.
Turkey Hill has asked all stores that sell the ice cream to remove the product from their shelves. The company has issued an advisory notice to consumers that purchased the ice cream to either discard it or deliver it to the store for a full refund if they are allergic to the ingredients in question.
The products included in the recall have the following information printed on the bottom of the package: Turkey Hill Dutch Chocolate Premium Ice Cream, 48 oz. (1.5 QTS—1.42L), UPC 20735-42095, sell-by date: 05.23.17. Consumers can also contact the company at 1-800-693-2479, for more information.
Fortunately, both Turkey Hill and Giant have stated that they haven’t received any reports of affected consumers at the time of posting. Nonetheless, the company said in a statement that:
Allergic reactions can include: hives; flushed skin or rash; tingling or itchy sensation in the mouth; face, tongue, or lip swelling; vomiting and/or diarrhea; abdominal cramps; coughing or wheezing … difficulty breathing; loss of consciousness.
If you exhibit any of these symptoms after eating Turkey Hill ice cream, it is recommended to administer an EpiPen. As a precaution, you should also visit the doctor in case you weren’t aware of having this type of allergic reactions.
