A popular ice cream flavor sold at Aldi grocery stores was recalled because it could put people with nut allergies at risk.
Michigan-based House of Flavors recalled Belmont Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough ice cream after discovering it could contain a nut product that is not declared on the label. The concern is that undeclared ingredient could pose a risk to people with nut allergies.
Two people reportedly complained of having allergic reactions after eating the ice cream.
The recalled ice cream was shipped to Aldi stores in Illinois, Indiana, Michigan and Ohio. Recalled containers are 1.5 quarts with UPC code 4149816310, date codes 13340 and 13341 and a ‘best by’ date of December 7, 2014.
Customers can return the recalled ice cream to any Aldi store, or call 1-800-930-7740.
Aldi has Quad Cities-area stores in Moline, Rock Island, Silvis, Kewanee, Galesburg, Sterling, and Dixon, Illinois.
