Breyers Ice Cream Recalled Due to Undeclared Wheat?

Enjoy gluten-free ice cream from Breyers?  If so, you may want to avoid them temporarily, as according to the FDA’s official recall page, it looks like some Breyers Ice Cream flavors have been recalled due to undeclared wheat on the label.   According to the recall announcement, it looks like the mispackaged ice cream product was distributed in Alabama, Arizona, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Puerto Rico, South Carolina, Tennessee, Trinidad and Virginia.  The affected product is being recalled from consumers and retailer store shelves, back rooms and warehouses.

Here is some additional information:

On a limited number of tubs, the lid describes the product as “Breyers® All Natural Cookies & Cream” ice cream, and the tub portion of the package describes the product as “Breyers® All Natural Mint Chocolate Chip” ice cream. The product inside of the tub is “All Natural Cookies & Cream.”  The ingredient statement on the tub does not declare wheat, which is an ingredient of the Cookies & Cream product.

The affected mispackaged product was distributed in 1.5-quart (1.41L) paperboard tubs marked with UPC # 077567254245 located on the side of the tub and in combination with “Best If Used By” dates of FEB1711GH, FEB1811GH and FEB1911GH located on the bottom of the tub.

The recall notes that consumers who have purchased the mispackaged Breyers® ice cream with UPC # 077567254245 and in combination with “Best If Used By” dates of FEB1711GH, FEB1811GH and FEB1911GH are urged to discard it immediately and contact the company at 1-877-270-7402 for a full refund.  For consumers outside the United States, please send an email to comments.breyers@unilever.com for a full refund.

The article also adds that no other Breyers ice cream has been affected by this recall.
