Stewart’s Ice Cream Recall
One of my favorite flavors of Stewart's ice cream is being recalled for improper labeling. The mistake could lead to something more serious so they are asking consumers to check their freezers. Pints of Stewart's Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup ice cream is being recalled because of a packaging error. The container says peanut butter cup but the lid is for a different flavor. This could result in a dangerous situation for consumers with peanut allergies.
According to News 10, Stewart's noticed that a pint of chocolate peanut butter ice cream had a plain chocolate ice cream lid. This is when they issued the recall. People with peanut allergies could mistake it for regular chocolate. This could lead to a serious or life-threatening allergic reaction.
The sixteen ounce cardboard container was distributed in upstate New York and Southern Vermont. UPC 0 82086 44468 8. They have a sell by date of 8/23/18 found at the bottom of the pint. Other codes are not affected. You can return them to your local Stewart's Shops for a full refund.
This is a precautionary recall and no illness has been reported. There are no other safety issues with this ice cream other than the potential of the peanut allergy.
