Gelato Recalled For Undeclared Peanuts

Packages of Roba Dolce “Double Chocolate Chunk Gelato” are being recalled because they may contain undeclared peanuts.

Warwick, RI I Dolce Inc, doing business as Roba Dolce, took the action after it was discovered the packaging did not list peanuts as an ingredient on its 33.8 oz (1 Liter) “Double Chocolate Chunk Gelato”.

People who have allergies to peanuts run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume these products.

The recalled “Double Chocolate Chunk Gelato” was distributed through Kroger/Fry’s stores in Arizona and Ohio.

The product comes in a gold plastic container.  Containers recalled will have stamped on the bottom either “Enjoy by 12/10/10, Mfg with pride pl #44-50, Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Sample”, or “Enjoy by 12/10/10, Mfg with pride pl #44-50”.

No illnesses have been associated with the recall.

The labeling problem was caused by a temporary breakdown in the company’s production and packaging processes.

Consumers who have purchased the 33.8 oz (1 Liter) containers of “Double Chocolate Chunk Gelato” are urged to return them to the place of purchase for a full refund or may contact the company at 1-877-743- 5286 between the hours of 9:00 am and 5:00 pm est. for a refund.
