The end of October, The U.S. Food Safety and Unilever United States, Inc., of Englewood Cliffs, NJ announced a nationwide recall of tubs of Breyers® ice cream because it was mis-packaged and may contain undeclared wheat. Unilever United States Inc., Breyers’ parent company, is recalling an undisclosed number of 1.5 quart tubs of "All Natural Cookies & Cream" ice cream that are carrying labels that say "All Natural Mint Chocolate Chip." The undeclared wheat, produces a health risk for people allergic to such ingredients.

Subject to recall are tubs where 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.

Each 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.

Consumers are urged to discard the product immediately and contact the company at 1-877-270-7402 for a full refund.

If you suffer from food poisoning, you need to get immediate medical care. If it continues or there are long term affects, you should contact an attorney concerning the problem. Early investigation can include the collection of samples, checking for health alerts, and the proper notifying of those who caused the problem.
