Advisory issued over four varieties of Cass-Clay ice cream

The Minnesota Department of Agriculture (MDA) and Cass-Clay Creamery of Fargo, North Dakota, have issued an allergy alert for undeclared allergens in four varieties of Cass-Clay Ice Cream.

Cass-Clay is voluntarily recalling the affected products, which were distributed in Minnesota, Iowa, Michigan, Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota, and Wisconsin. All code dates for these products manufactured in Plant #38-25 are affected.

The following three products have been recalled because they may contain undeclared Brazil nuts:

• Cass-Clay Maple Nut Ice Cream, 1 Gallon (3.78L), UPC 70422-03404;

• Cass-Clay Premium Light Maple Nut Ice Cream, 1 Gallon (3.78L), UPC 70422-23404;

• Hornbacher's Maple Nut Ice Cream, Half-Gallon (1.89L), UPC 41130-21666.

The following product has been recalled because it may contain undeclared peanut oil and soy lecithin:

• Cass-Clay Premium Light Double Chocolate Fudge Ice Cream, Half-Gallon (1.89L), UPC 70422-24061.

State officials are not aware of any illnesses associated with these products, but people who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to nuts or peanut oil and soy lecithin may risk a serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume these products. The company issued a separate recall for undeclared eggs in a different ice cream product earlier this month.

Consumers are advised to return these products to the store where they were purchased for a full refund. Anyone requiring more information is advised to call the Cass-Clay Consumer Affairs line at 1-800-441-4269. Media calls should be referred to Julie King at 651-379-6527.
