Allergy Alert: Kroger’s Moose Tracks Ice Cream

Peanuts aren’t listed as an ingredient on some containers of Kroger’s Private Selection Extreme Moose Tracks Ice Cream, so the grocery chain is recalling the ice cream that was sold in 10 states.

People who are allergic to peanuts could have a serious or life-threatening reaction if they consume the ice cream, but for consumers who are not allergic to peanuts, there is no safety issue.

The recalled ice cream containing undisclosed peanuts is Private Selection Extreme Moose Tracks Ice Cream sold in 16-ounce pints with a sell-by date of June 18, 2012 under the  UPC Code: 11110 52909.

Kroger stores in the following states are included in this recall: Alabama, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, portions of eastern Missouri, Ohio and northern Kentucky, South Carolina, and eastern Tennessee. The recall also includes Kroger stores in Illinois and Indiana that operate under the Jay C, Food 4 Less (Chicago area), Owen’s, Pay Less and Scott’s banner names.

Not included in this recall are Kroger stores in Arkansas, Kentucky (except northern Kentucky), Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, Texas, Virginia, West Virginia, central and western Tennessee. Other stores Kroger operates under different banner names are also not included in this recall.

Customers can return the recalled ice cream to stores for a full refund or replacement.
