Dean Foods Recalls Some Ice Cream
Feb. 26, 1999
FRANKLIN PARK, Ill. (AP) _ Dean Foods has recalled two brands of cookie dough ice cream that failed to list eggs on the ingredient labels.
Dean officials said today the recall would amount to less than 10,000 gallons of chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream sold under the Dean and Reiter brand and produced at the company's plant in Belvidere, Ill.
The egg ingredient in the cookie dough pieces could cause a life threatening reaction in people allergic or sensitive to eggs, company officials said.
The recall includes all rectangular half-gallon size and round pint-size containers of the Dean's brand, which were distributed in Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Michigan, Ohio, Wisconsin, Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina and Virginia.
Round pint-size containers of the Reiter brand, which was distributed in Ohio, Kentucky and Pennsylvania are included in the recall.
Both products bear the plant code 17-81. Consumers concerned about the presence of egg in the product may return it to the place of purchase, Dean said.
