Peanut fears prompts ice cream recall

February 27, 2009 11:05:19 AM PST
Turkey Hill Dairy is voluntarily recalling one of its ice cream flavors because it contains peanut from a Texas facility that health officials have linked to salmonella contamination.

The central Pennsylvania-based company said Friday it was pulling back Dynamic Duos Movie Night, a new flavor that was distributed on a limited basis in 14 states.

The flavor uses peanut ingredients from a Peanut Corp. of America facility in Plainview, Texas.

Dynamic Duos was sent to groceries and convenience stores in Connecticut, Delaware, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Vermont and Virginia.

Turkey Hill says it has not received any reports of consumers being sickened by that flavor of its ice cream.

Turkey Hill recalled six other ice cream flavors in January.
