In a news release, the Kroger Company, in conjunction with the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), announced the recall of certain containers of their Private Selection Extreme Moose Tracks Ice Cream across multiple states due to a failure to declare the presence of peanuts on the product label.
This recall affects Kroger’s Private Selection Extreme Moose Tracks Ice Cream sold in 16-ounce pints. The ice cream has a “sell by” date of June 18 of next year and can be identified by the UPC code 11110 52909. Kroger removed the affected products from their stores and initiated their customer recall notification system to alert customers who may have purchased the item through register receipt tape messages and phone calls. The product is being recalled from multiple states, however, Kroger operates stores under the brands of Jay C, Food 4 Less, Owen’s, Pay Less and Scott’s, which are not affected.
Consumers that have purchased the defective product are being urged to return the product to stores for a full refund or replacement. Individuals with allergic reactions to peanuts could potentially experience serious or life threatening allergic reactions if they consume this product. For consumers with no allergy to peanuts, there is no safety problem with this product.
