Ice cream brand Turkey Hill Dairy is voluntarily issuing an ice cream recall on certain containers of its Chocolate Marshmallow Premium Ice Cream, as it may contain undeclared peanuts. While only 385 containers have been affected, people with peanut allergies will be at risk if they come into contact with these products. The ice cream recall is being carried out in cooperation with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
Turkey Hill Dairy was first informed of the contamination by a customer, who noticed that some containers of the Chocolate Marshmallow Premium Ice Cream variety seemed to have been accidentally filled with the Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup Ice Cream variety instead. Turkey Hill Dairy, which is the fourth-largest premium ice cream brand in the country, according to the FDA, is sold in 50 U.S. states as well as internationally. Fortunately, there have been no reports of illnesses linked to these affected products to date. If you are concerned about whether you have purchased one of the affected products, here are the container details to look out for:
- Product: Chocolate Marshmallow Premium Ice Cream
- Container size: 48 oz
- UPC code: 020735420935
- Sell-by date: 03/02/2023 (located on the bottom of the package)
- Purchase date range: 4/14/2022 and 4/19/2022
No other Turkey Hill Dairy products with different UPC codes and sell-by dates or in different sizes or varieties have been affected. In a statement, the FDA said: “People who have an allergy to peanuts run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume these products.” According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), along with milk, eggs, fish, shellfish, wheat, soy, and tree nuts, peanuts are the cause of some of the most severe allergic reactions in the country. An estimated 1.2% of the U.S. population is allergic to peanuts. It’s also the most common kind of food allergy in children, with around 2.5% of children affected. Unfortunately, they are a leading cause of allergy-related deaths in children.
An allergic reaction to peanuts typically occurs within just minutes after the individual comes into contact with a peanut or peanut-containing product. According to the Mayo Clinic, symptoms of a peanut allergy can include hives, swollen skin, tightened throat, shortness of breath, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, stomach cramps, a runny nose, or an itchy mouth or throat. Anaphylaxis is the most severe allergic reaction to peanuts. This is a whole-body response to an allergen and can be life-threatening. Symptoms can include impaired breathing, swelling of the throat, a severe drop in blood pressure, pale skin, blue lips, rapid pulse, fainting, and dizziness. The only way to treat someone in anaphylactic shock is with an EpiPen (an adrenaline auto-injector) and by heading to the emergency room.
All stores that received the recalled Turkey Hill Dairy ice cream have been advised to remove these products from their shelves. Shoppers who have bought the recalled ice cream can return their containers to the place of purchase for a full refund. Alternatively, you can also contact Turkey Hill Dairy at 1-800-MY-DAIRY (1-800-693-2479), Monday through Friday, from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. E.S.T.
