H‑E‑B has announced a recall of its Creamy Creations Cherry Vanilla Light Churn Style Half‑Gallon Ice Cream product because the ice cream is made with a nut ingredient that is not disclosed on the food’s label.
H-E-B did not share a photo of the recalled product that I am allowed to pass along to you but did admit in a statement published on its website that the problem was only discovered after a customer returned his or her ice cream to the store.
H-E-B says that it has documented no reports of anyone consuming the ice cream and becoming ill. H-E-B has not said whether the undeclared nut ingredient was a peanut ingredient or a tree nut.(The store’s webpage for its Creamy Creations Light Churn Style Cherry Vanilla Ice Cream in 1.75-quart tubs does carry an allergy note about an almond component.)
Five H-E-B stores are thought to have stocked the recalled ice cream. Those are:
- Carrizo Springs
- Crystal City
- Eagle Pass #2
