Popular ice cream maker Maple View Farms, located on the outskirts of Chapel Hill in Hillsborough, has issued a recall affecting over 2,600 pints of ice cream.
Our Raleigh food allergy injury lawyers know how difficult it is for individuals, especially children, living with food allergies to manage their food choices when eating out. People have to put their trust in restaurants and other food-serving businesses whenever they eat out. Proper food labels, warnings, and information needs to be available to those who suffer severe food allergies.
Some people have minor food allergies and will have reactions like a rash or upset stomach, while other times allergy sufferers may go into anaphylactic shock and not survive. Not everyone reacts the same, and not everyone has the same allergies. Nuts, soy, dairy and gluten allergies are the most common.
The types of ice cream flavors included in the Maple View Farm recall include:
- Carolina Crunch
- Cookie Dough
- Cookies and Cream
The recall was issued because the labels had insufficient information about the ingredients. The pints of ice cream, sold throughout the Triangle and along the coast in Wilmington and Morehead City, might contain almonds, peanuts, soy, or wheat.
If you have purchased one of these flavors between September 2012 and April 2013, the manufacturer instructs consumers to discard of them or return them to wherever they were purchased.
