Shamrock Foods Company Issues Voluntary Recall on Nutty Sundae Cones

Shamrock Foods Company has issued a voluntary recall on its Shamrock Farms Nutty Sundae Cones ice cream novelty with the UPC # 2830090179. This product is garnished with chopped peanuts from the Peanut Corporation of America, which has been implicated in a national outbreak of Salmonella by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

Shamrock Foods Company does not manufacture this item, but has taken this precautionary step following notification by its product manufacturer Ice Cream Specialties, Inc. The Nutty Sundae Cone is a 4.5 oz. novelty ice cream sold to convenience stores, drug stores and food service establishments.

“We are committed to providing top-quality dairy products, and this is a necessary step to ensure the health and safety of our consumers,” said Sandy Kelly, marketing director for Shamrock Farms. “To date, the Nutty Sundae Cone has not been identified as contaminated or linked to any illness. Consumers who have purchased the product in question may call Shamrock Farms consumer relations department at 1.888.HI.ROXIE (1.888.447.6943) for more information.”

Trade customers are asked to direct all questions to their Shamrock Foods Company representative.
