FDA Announces Nestlé Country Creamery Ice Cream Recall in Texas – Product May Contain Egg Not Identified On Label

Dreyer’s Grand Ice Cream, which manufactures Nestlé Country Creamery, is recalling two flavors of Nestlé Country Creamery Ice Cream purchased sold at Wal-Mart stores in Texas because the ice cream may contain egg not identified on the label.

The Nestlé Country Creamery flavors involved in the recall are Toll House® Chocolate Chip and French Vanilla.

The cartons of Nestlé Country Creamery Toll House® Chocolate Chip 1.75-quart and Nestlé Country Creamery French Vanilla 1.75-quart that could be affected have a “Best If Purchased By 11/10/06″ date, which can be found on the bottom of the carton.

According to the company, there are only 43 mislabeled cartons believed to be in the marketplace, and no other Nestlé Country Creamery ice cream products are affected.

Only individuals who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to egg may risk a serious or potentially life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume this product.

Anyone with an egg allergy or sensitivity to eggs should not consume the ice cream and should dispose of the product immediately.

To date, no consumers have reported symptoms of allergic reaction.

The company is working with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in implementing this voluntary product recall and is investigating the incident, and is also working with the Food Allergy and Anaphylaxis Network to alert consumers in the Texas area.

Any consumers who have purchased the ice cream in question should call the Nestlé Country Creamery Consumer CallCenter at 1 888 837-4438, for a full refund.
