Oregon Ice Cream Manufacturing is Voluntarily Recalling Aldens Organic Brand Peanut Butter n Chip Ice Cream and Cascade Glacier Brand Chocolate Peanut Butter Ice Cream Due to Possible Health Risks
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - September 27, 2012 - Out of the utmost concern for our consumers, Oregon Ice Cream Company is initiating a voluntary recall of Alden's Peanut Butter 'n Chip, 48oz and Cascade Glacier Chocolate Peanut Butter, 3 gallon that contain peanut butter associated with the Sunland, Inc. recall. The peanut butter used in this product has the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella.
As you may have heard, to date Sunland, Inc. has recalled 75 products after learning that twenty nine people reported Salmonella Bredeneye PFGE matching illnesses in approximately 18 states. These products are distributed nationally to a number of large supermarket chains.
Consumption of food contaminated with Salmonella can cause salmonellosis, one of the most common bacterial foodborne illnesses. Salmonella infections can be life-threatening, especially to those with weak immune systems, such as infants, the elderly and persons with HIV infection or undergoing chemotherapy. The most common manifestations of salmonellosis are diarrhea, abdominal cramps, and fever within eight to 72 hours. Additional symptoms may be chills, headache, nausea and vomiting that can last up to seven days.
There have been no reported illnesses attributed to these two recalled items. Oregon Ice Cream Company is issuing this voluntary recall linked to the supplier's Peanut Butter recall to minimize the risk to the public health.
A list of the recalled production lots is identified in the table below. The Alden's product is packaged in a 48oz container with prominent label identification. The five-digit production code date is either printed or stamped onto the bottom of the container. The Cascade Glacier product is packaged in a 3 gallon tub container with a blue sticker label identifying the flavor, UPC, and the five-digit production code date.
Anyone who has the recalled product in their possession should not consume it and should destroy or discard the product. Consumers with questions may contact the company at 1-800- 282-2202 Monday- Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. (Pacific Time).
