The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced on Jan. 7, a recall of ShurFine Creamery Select Premium Ice cream due to undeclared wheat, soy and pecans in the list of ingredients label. The Southwest Ice Cream Specialties Co. voluntarily recalled the 1.75 quarts of ShurFine Praline Pecan ice cream because the food allergen list of ingredients was not properly labeled on the carton.
The McKinney, Texas based ice cream company explained that the cartons on the affected product were incorrectly used with the lids that do bear the ShurFine Praline Pecan flavor.
The recalled dairy product was sold by retailers in Ariz., Ark., Colo., Kan., Okla., N.M., and Texas with the UPC 015400224840. The best by date is Nov. 8, 2014.
People who are food sensitive or allergic to wheat, soy and pecans, should not consume the affected product because they were inadvertently not listed as a food ingredient nor declared and labeled properly to indicate them as food allergens.
There have been no reported illnesses or complaints to date.
