Ice Cream Specialties Announces Nationwide Recall of Ice Cream Novelties Because of Possible Health Risk

Ice Cream Specialties has initiated a recall of a various peanut-containing ice cream novelties produced in its Indiana plant because they have the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella, an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Healthy persons infected with Salmonella often experience fever, diarrhea (which may be bloody), nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain. In rare circumstances, infection with Salmonella can result in the organism getting into the bloodstream and producing more severe illnesses such as arterial infections (i.e., infected aneurysms), endocarditis and arthritis.

These ice cream novelties are sold nationwide at retail stores, convenience stores and possibly in vending machines.

The ice cream novelties included in this recall are:
