Maple View Ice Cream Recalled For Allergen Risk
HILLSBOROUGH- The North Carolina Department of Agriculture reports that Maple View Farm is voluntarily recalling pint containers of Cookies & Cream, Carolina Crunch and Cookie Dough ice cream because the products contain allergens that were not declared on package labels.
Some or all of the products contain wheat, soy, almonds and peanuts, which can cause serious allergic reactions in people who have an allergy or sensitivity to these ingredients.
The recall affects 2,650 pints of ice cream sold between Sept. 5, 2012, and April 24, 2013. The products were distributed to a limited number of grocery stores and specialty shops in Carrboro, Chapel Hill, Durham, Hillsborough, Mebane, Morehead City, Morrisville, Pittsboro, Snow Camp and Wilmington.
Department of Agriculture officials say no complaints of allergic reactions to this product have been reported to date.
They recommend consumers who have allergies to these ingredients should return the product to the place of purchase or throw it away.
