Not only is this ice cream add-on not tasty — it’s not edible.
The US Food & Drug Administration this month announced a recall of 11,371 Weis Markets ice-cream containers for being “contaminated with extraneous material, specifically metal filling equipment parts.”
Of the recalled treats, the majority (10,869 containers) are of 48-ounce Weis’ Quality Cookies and Cream, and 502 are for commercial-sale only 3-gallon bulk containers of Klein’s Vanilla Dairy flavor.
The recall follows an ice cream eater making a very unwanted finding in their dessert.
“There has been one report of a customer who discovered an intact piece of metal equipment in the Weis Quality Cookies and Cream Ice Cream,” the FDA wrote. “There is concern of an additional piece of equipment present in the ice cream product(s) possibly presenting a choking hazard.”
The product was sold at 197 Weis Markets’ stores in Pennsylvania, Maryland, Virginia, New Jersey, New York, Delaware and West Virginia. Anyone who bought the product — which has a sell-by date of 10/29/2020 — can return it for a full refund.
There have been a number of high-profile recalls recently, including one for various Sportmix pet foods following the deaths of at least 28 dogs. The agency warned pet owners and animal specialists in December that certain varieties of the brand’s pet food “may contain potentially fatal levels of aflatoxin,” a mold that can grow on corn and other grains used in pet foods. Aflatoxin poisoning symptoms include sluggishness, loss of appetite, diarrhea and vomiting, the agency said at the time, urging pet owners whose animals had consumed the recalled products to contact their veterinarians.
“Although this pet food recall is still unfolding, we are sharing the facts we have so far because the levels of aflatoxin found in the recalled pet food are potentially fatal,” said Dr. Amber McCoig, deputy director of the FDA’s Center for Veterinary Medicine Division of Compliance.
