Real Reason Behind Serious Ice Cream Recall Revealed

The Food and Drug Administration of the United States stated over the weekend that another ice cream brand had been subjected to a major recall. Because the Howling Cow Butter Almond Ice Cream Pints include soy and wheat ingredients, the Maryland & Virginia Milk Producers Cooperative Association (MDVA) has recalled some of its products because the labels do not include a warning.

Those who have a wheat or soy allergy or sensitivity may experience life-threatening allergic responses if they ingest goods that include the ingredients in question. The recall affects ice cream products sold in North Carolina and South Carolina, among other states.

The pints that have been recalled have a “SELL BY” date of September 15, 2022, on the label. Each box contains a date that may be found at the bottom of the package. The pints of Howling Cow Butter Almond Ice Cream feature the UPC code “0 74336 65079 6” on the label.

When consumers realized that some containers of the Howling Cow Butter Almond Ice Cream flavor actually included Cookie Dough Ice Cream, MDVA was alerted to the problem. Because the Cookie Dough flavor contains soy and wheat components, which are not present in the Butter Almond flavor, the Cookie Dough canisters were not labeled as such.

MDVA completed production of 8,040 pints of Butter Almond Ice Cream on September 15 and began exporting the ice cream on September 24. The pints were distributed to Harris Teeter locations in North Carolina and South Carolina.

Retailers were instructed to cease selling and distributing Butter Almoing pints as soon as possible. Pints should be thrown away by customers, or they should seek a refund from the store where they purchased the pints.

The FDA has issued a recall for ice cream, which is the latest in a long line. Velvet Ice Cream voluntarily withdrew all of its ice cream produced on or after March 24 as a precaution after batches were found to be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes, according to a recall notice issued in April.

The items were distributed to supermarkets, drug stores, and convenience stores in the states of Indiana, Kentucky, Ohio, and West Virginia, among others.

Luconda Dager, CEO of Velvet Ice Cream, said in a statement provided by the FDA that the company was “concerned about the wellness and safety of our customers and consumers.” “We are committed to providing consumers with high-quality ice cream and sherbet goods,” says the company.

Weis Markets recalled around 11,000 cartons of ice cream in January after it was determined that some of the products may have included metal shards.

A statement from the company stated that “the items may be contaminated with extraneous material, notably metal filling equipment pieces.”
