Possible metal presence in ice cream prompts recall by Kawartha Dairy

Canadian Food Inspection Agency urges people to throw out product if purchased

I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream, except if the product is being recalled.

Kawartha Dairy is recalling some of its ice cream products due to the possible presence of pieces of metal, according to a news release from the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA)

The recalled products, which are sold in Ontario, include the company’s chocolate chip cookie dough and mint chip ice cream, flavours sold in 1.5-litre and 11.4-litre containers.

CFIA said people who purchased these products should throw them out or return them to where they were purchased. The agency said the Bobcaygeon-based company triggered the recall. CFIA added that it is conducting a food safety investigation into the dairy.

“If other high-risk products are recalled, the CFIA will notify the public through updated food recalling warnings,” it stated in the release. “The CFIA is verifying the industry is removing the recalled products from the marketplace.”
