Some Breyers-brand ice cream recalled

Unilever United States Inc. says it is recalling some tubs of Breyers ice cream because they contain undeclared wheat. The Englewood Cliffs, N.J., company said the recalled ice cream is contained in tubs which have mismatched lids. The lid describes the product as "Breyers All Natural Cookies & Cream" and the tub portion of the package describes the product as "Breyers All Natural Mint Chocolate Chip" ice cream.

The product inside of the tub is "All Natural Cookies & Cream," but the ingredient statement does not declare wheat, which is an ingredient of that product, thereby posing a health hazard for people with an allergy to wheat.

The recalled ice cream was distributed in Alabama, Arizona, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Puerto Rico, South Carolina, Tennessee, Trinidad and Virginia in 1.5-quart tubs carrying "Best If Used By" dates of "FEB1711GH," "FEB1811GH" and "FEB1911GH. The dates are located on the bottom of the tub.
