Western Family Maple Nut Ice Cream Recall – Latest Info

LinkDeluxe Ice Cream, which is a subsidiary of the Matterhorn Group, Inc., recently issued a recall of the Western Family Maple Nut Ice Cream, due to the discovery of the possibility that the ice cream may contain traces of peanuts, although this fact is not indicated on the packaging of the ice cream. Although no complaints or illnesses with regards to this problem have been reported to date, this recall is being treated as serious due to the possibility that the consumption of this product by a person who is allergic to peanuts or has a severe sensitivity to peanuts could lead to a serious or life-threatening allergic reaction. The US food and Drug Administration (FDA) has been informed of this issue, and is cooperating with this recall.

The Western Family Maple Nut Ice Cream (56 fl oz packages) are understood to have been distributed to retail stores throughout Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Montana, California, Alaska and Guam. The product which being recalled reportedly has the UPC code of 15400-22808, in addition to being stamped with the following data “Best By 07-23-11 Plant 41-48,” followed by a four-digit time code. Consumers in possession of these products are requested to return them to the place of purchase, where they will be offered a full refund.
