Labeling Error Prompts Ice Cream Recall

Publix Super Markets are recalling certain lots of its ice cream flavors because one could pose an allergy risk to consumers.

According to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, Publix Super Markets is recalling its for Publix Premium Light Tiramisu Ice Cream because it could actually contain Publix Premium Coffee Almond Fudge Light Ice Cream. The Fudge ice-cream has almonds in it, which could pose an allergy risk to those with nut allergies.

The product included in the recall is: Publix Premium Light Tiramisu Ice Cream, UPC:  41415- 13343. The lot code, which is found on bottom of carton, is: Sep 12 2011 B7 PLT 12-444.

The undeclared allergen could cause serious or life-threatening allergic reactions if allergic consumers eat this product.

As a Seattle personal injury lawyer, I’m glad to hear that no reports of food borne injuries or allergic reactions have been reported in connection to this recall. I urge consumers to throw out this product or return it, especially if a family member or loved one has a nut allergy. Consumers with questions or who would like a replacement may contact Publix at 1-800-242-1227.
