DENVER (AP) – Southwest Ice Cream Specialties of McKinney, Texas, is voluntarily recalling some of its Dulce de Leche ice cream containers because they may contain praline pecan ice cream, which has wheat, soy and pecans that could cause problems for people allergic to those ingredients.
Colorado health officials say the recall affects ShurFine Brand Creamery Select (Premium Ice Cream) Dulce de Leche in 1.75-quart containers with a “Best By” date of Nov. 8, 2014; the UPC code 015400224840; and the plant code 48-3202-F. It was packed with a ShurFine Praline Pecan lid but bears the Dulce de Leche labeling on the carton.
There were no reports of illnesses as of Tuesday afternoon.
The product was distributed by stores in Colorado, Arizona, Arkansas, Kansas, Oklahoma, New Mexico and Texas.
CORRECTION: In a story Jan. 8 about a voluntary recall of some ShurFine ice cream, The Associated Press, relying on information from the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment, erroneously reported a plant code. The correct code is 48-3202-F. A corrected version of the story is above.
