The Food Watchdog staff wades through acres of recall notices every week, but now and then one comes along that affects food that is likely to be gobbled down in the dark of night, in very large quantities. That is, ice cream.
So, take note:
Kroger has recalled some of its Private Selection Extreme Moose Tracks Ice Cream after discovering it contained peanuts — a potential allergen that is not noted on the label.
The Food & Drug Administration put out the word Oct. 12, 2011.
Here’s the deal:
The problem stuff is sold in 16-ounce pints with a “sell by” date of June 18, 2012 under the following UPC Code: 11110 52909. It was sold in 10 states: Alabama, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Missouri, Ohio, Kentucky, South Carolina and Tennessee. (The recall also includes Kroger stores in Illinois and Indiana called Jay C, Food 4 Less, Owen’s, Pay Less and Scott’s.
