Another ice cream recall has been issued, this time by Belfonte Dairy.
The company has recalled all of its 1.5-quart “Chocolate to Die For” Premium Ice Cream over a peanut allergy concern. The product was sold at Hy-Vee, Cash Saver, Harps, Price Mart, and Heartland stores and distributors in the Kansas City, Missouri metro area, including Kansas City, Kansas; as well as in Tulsa, Oklahoma; Columbia, Missouri; and Springfield, Missouri; and other surrounding areas.
The recall was issued because the ice cream may contain peanuts, which was not declared on the product label. People that have an allergy or severe sensitivity to peanuts could have a serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume the recalled ice cream, Belfonte Dairy said in its recall notice.
The recalled ice cream has a UPC of 83057 17049 and use by dates of May 18, 2024, and June 8, 2024. The ice cream was produced at the company’s Kansas City facility and has a plant code of 29-050.
Belfonte Dairy was notified of the allergy risk through a consumer complaint. The company said it has not received any reports of illness from the recalled ice cream to date.
No other Belfonte Dairy products were a part of the recall, the company said.
Consumers that have the affected ice cream in their possession can return it to the place of purchase for a refund. Questions about the recall can be directed to Belfonte Dairy by phone at 1-816-231-2000, seven days a week from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. CT, or via email at https://www.belfontedairy.com/contact/.
This is the second recall for ice cream this week. On Wednesday, Big Olaf Creamery recalled all flavors and lots of its self-branded ice cream because it may be contaminated with Listeria.
The recalled ice cream has been linked to 23 Listeria illnesses in 10 states, 22 hospitalizations, and one death, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
The potentially contaminated ice cream was sold at Big Olaf shops in Florida as well as in restaurants, senior homes, and a location in Fredericksburg, Ohio. Consumers are urged not to consume the recalled ice cream. It should be disposed of immediately, Big Olaf said.
