Ice Cream with Peanuts is Allergy Threat

Oregon Ice Cream Company LLC of Eugene, OR is voluntarily recalling 641 tubs of 3 gallon Denali Bear Claw ice cream, because it may contain undeclared peanuts.

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

Denali Bear Claw ice cream was distributed in the following states: Oregon, Washington, California, Idaho, Nevada, Montana, Arizona, and Alaska.  Consumers can buy this product at ice cream scoop shops or from Cash & Carry stores.

The product can be easily identified by the label on the side of the 3 gallon tub.  The label reads in part “Denali Bear Claw”, Distributed by Oregon Ice Cream Company, Plant 41-90, 3 gallons, 10124, 061041.  The affected lot code of product is 10124 and the item number of the product is 061041.  

No illnesses have been reported in connection with the recalled product.

The recall was initiated after it was discovered that product containing peanuts was distributed in packaging that did not reveal the presence of peanuts. Subsequent investigation indicates the problem was caused by accidental use of ingredients with very similar packaging during production.

Consumers who have purchased Denali Bear Claw are urged to return it to the place of purchase for full refunds if in the original container, otherwise destroy the product.

Consumers with questions may contact the company at 1-800-282-2202, office hours are between 8am and 5pm Monday through Friday PST.
