WASHINGTON, June 14 (UPI) — The U.S. Food and Drug Administration announced the recall of Kroger-brand deluxe chocolate paradise ice cream because of a labeling error.
The FDA said The Kroger Co. of Cincinnati initiated the recalled because the ice cream might contain tree nuts not listed on the label, posing a serious or even life-threatening reaction for people allergic to tree nuts.
The recalled product was sold in Kroger stores in Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michigan, Mississippi, Missouri, North Carolina, Ohio, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia and West Virginia.
Kroger said the ice cream was also sold at Jay C, Food 4 Less, Hilander, Owen’s, Pay Less and Scott’s stores in Illinois and Indiana.
The recalled “Kroger Deluxe Chocolate Paradise Ice Cream” was sold in 48-ounce containers with a “sell by” date of “Jan 24 11.”
