Bobcaygeon-based Kawartha Dairy Limited is voluntarily recalling eight production codes of two flavours of its ice cream because of the potential of small pieces of metal in the chocolate chips provided by one of its suppliers.
The popular dairy made the announcement on its Facebook and Instagram accounts last Tuesday (November 24).
“We are making this voluntary withdrawal out of an abundance of caution, because the safety of our customers and your confidence in our products has always been our number one priority,” the dairy writes. “Kawartha Dairy has not received any consumer complaints regarding this issue and no injuries have been reported.”
On Sunday (November 29), the Canadian Food Inspection Agency also posted a food recall warning at the request of Kawartha Dairy.
The recalled products include the following production codes of Mint Chip Ice Cream and Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Ice Cream, both the 1.5-litre retail sizes and the 11.4-litre commercial sizes:
|Kawartha Dairy||Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Ice Cream||1.5 L||0 62229 08950 1||PRD / 03/11/2020 and PRD / 04/11/2020|
|Kawartha Dairy||Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Ice Cream||11.4 L||0 62229 08150 5||PRD: 03/11/2020 and PRD: 04/11/2020|

No other flavours of ice cream are involved, and the recall is limited to the specific production codes listed above.
Consumers should not eat the recalled products and retailers, restaurants, and institutions should not sell or use the recalled products
If you have a recalled product, Kawartha Dairy says you can return it to the place of purchase for a full refund, or email firstname.lastname@example.org for a full refund or if you have any further questions.
