Pierre’s Ice Cream Company Issues Allergy Alert on its Homestyle Brand of Dutch Chocolate Ice Cream for Undeclared
Peanut Butter Cup Candies

CLEVELAND, OH.--(PR NEWSWIRE)—Pierre’s Ice Cream Company, in cooperation with the Food and Drug Administration, is voluntarily recalling its Pierre’s Homestyle Dutch Chocolate Ice Cream (purple 56 fl oz package) because it may contain undeclared peanut butter cup candies. The containers are identified with the code 07320 which is printed on the rim of the lid.

People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to peanuts run the risk of developing a life threatening health problem/illness if they consume this batch of Dutch Chocolate.  No illnesses have been reported to date.

This ice cream was distributed in Ohio, Michigan, Western Pennsylvania, and Indiana and reached consumers through retail stores. The packaging does not reveal the presence of peanut butter candy or peanuts on the ingredient label.

If consumers have a Dutch Chocolate 56 fl oz (purple package) with the code 07320 on the rim of the lid, they should discard the ice cream and send the lid of the empty container back to Pierre’s for a full refund:
