Kroger recalls ice cream with unlisted peanuts
Friday, October 14, 2011
Kroger is recalling ice cream sold in 10 states including Missouri because it may contain peanuts not mentioned on the label.
The nation's largest grocery store operator says people with peanut allergies could have a serious or even life-threatening reaction if they eat the Private Selection Extreme Moose Tracks ice cream being recalled.
The recall involves only 16-ounce pints of the product with a sell-by date of June 18, 2012 and the UPC code 11110 52909.
The ice cream was sold at Kroger stores in Alabama, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, Missouri, Ohio, South Carolina and Tennessee, as well as the company's Jay C, Food 4 Less, Owen's, Pay Less and Scott's stores in Illinois and Indiana.
Not included in this recall are Kroger stores in Arkansas, Kentucky (except northern Kentucky), Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, Texas, Virginia, West Virginia, central and western Tennessee. Other stores Kroger operates under different banner names are also not included in this recall.
Kroger Co. says shoppers should return the product to supermarkets for a refund or replacement.
