HOLLAND, Mich., Feb. 2 /PRNewswire/ -- Hudsonville Ice Cream today voluntarily recalled the 64 oz. containers of its Candy Bar Whirl Ice Cream (UPC# 70438 10250 8), which is available in Michigan grocers such as Meijer, Family Fare, D&W, Harding's Market, L&L Food centers and others.
This product contains pieces of candy bars that contain nuts that were processed in the Blakeley, Ga. plant of Peanut Corporation of America, which has just announced an expansion of a voluntary recall covering all peanut products processed in their plant since Jan. 1, 2007. Peanut Corporation of America is currently the focus of an ongoing investigation by the Food & Drug Administration concerning recent Salmonella outbreaks initially associated with its peanut paste.
Hudsonville Ice Cream has not received any cases of reported illnesses related to this product. The recall did not affect any other flavors of Hudsonville Ice cream.
Hudsonville Ice Cream became aware of this issue today. As the FDA investigation of Peanut Corporation has progressed, additional products have been added to the recall. After we received notification from our supplier, we took immediately action, contacting our customers and asking that they remove the product from their shelves. We are also putting a notification on our web site.
Consumers who have purchased Candy Bar Whirl are being instructed to return the product to the store where they purchased it for a full refund.
