I Scream, You Scream, Ice Cream Recalls



There's no such thing as a good month for a recall, but a few days before the Fourth of July couldn't be any worse for a an ice cream recall.

Nestle is pulling 10,000 cases of its 14-ounce Chocolate Peanut Butter Haagen-Dazs Ice Cream because the containers were mislabeled. The product did not say it contains peanuts, which can pose problems with people who struggle with allergies. The recall affects 14-ounce cartons of ice cream with a best-by date of May 13, 2015.

This latest incident comes on the heels of another ice cream recall, when Rite Aid pulled hundreds of 16-oz. pints distributed under the Thrifty brand name.

Those recalled pints contained pistachio ice cream; however, the ice cream was inadvertently placed in containers labeled as being Mint ‘n Chip. Again, the recall was to protect people with nut allergies.
