Boulder Ice Cream Announces a Voluntary Limited Recall of Ice Cream and Gelato Products Due to Possible Health Risk

BOULDER, Colo. (November 12, 2012) — Due to the ongoing Sunland Inc. nationwide peanut recall, Boulder Ice Cream today announced a voluntary recall of certain ice cream and gelato products manufactured using peanut ingredients recalled by Sunland  Inc. due to potential Salmonella contamination. For more information on the Sunland recall, please see the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s website

(http://www.fda.gov/Safety/Recalls/MajorProductRecalls/SunlandNutSeedProductRecalls/default.htm)

or read Sunland’s official statement at: http://www.sunlandinc.com/788/html/pdfs/SunlandRecall.pdf.

The below lots of Boulder Ice Cream Peanut Butter Cup pints (16oz), Sorano Gelato Chocolate Peanut Butter pints (16 oz), and additional food service products are being voluntarily recalled because peanuts possibly used in the production of these identified products may have the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella, an organism that can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and those 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.

Boulder Ice Cream was notified by their contract manufacturer, Fresca Foods, Inc. located in Louisville, CO that Sunland peanuts were and may have been used in the production of certain peanut butter products in the past; therefore Boulder Ice Cream is voluntarily participating in the recall.

The recall is being conducted in cooperation with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). 

The products were distributed nationally to numerous large supermarket chains; the larger format container products were distrubuted to food service.
