Posted on Jun 16, 2010

Kroger has recalled a store brand variety of ice cream after discovering it could contain tree nuts not listed on the package. The recall affects stores in 17 states including North Carolina and South Carolina.

The recall affects a flavor variety named "Chocolate Paradise Ice Cream" in 48-ounce containes with a January 24, 2011 "Sell By" date. Other varieties and ice cream of the same variety with a different "Sell By" date are not affected by the recall. Individuals with nut allergies should not consume the ice cream.

Individuals without nut allergies should not have a safety issue if they consume the product. However, the ice cream could cause a life-threatening reaction in individuals with a tree nuts allergy.
