FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE -- LANCASTER COUNTY, Pa. (February 27, 2009) – Turkey Hill Dairy of Lancaster County, Pa., is adding its Dynamic Duos Movie Night Ice Cream to its list of voluntarily recalled products because it contains peanut ingredients from the Plainview, Texas, facility of the Peanut Corporation of America (PCA).
The facility has been the focus of an ongoing Salmonella investigation by the United States Food & Drug Administration (FDA). As part of the investigation, FDA administrators are now suggesting the recall of all products containing ingredients from PCA's Plainview, Texas, facility since 2005.
Turkey Hill recalled six products in late January after the FDA expanded its investigation to include all peanuts processed by the PCA at its Blakely, Ga., plant since January 1, 2007.
Salmonella is an organism, that can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Healthy persons infected with Salmonella often experience fever, diarrhea (which may be bloody), nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain. In rare circumstances, infection with Salmonella can result in the organism getting into the bloodstream and producing more severe illnesses such as arterial infections (i.e., infected aneurysms), endocarditis and arthritis.
Details about the recall are as follows:
Dynamic Duos Movie Night Ice Cream
Container Size: 1.5 Quarts
UPC Code: 020735112106
From Sell by Code: 10/06/09 to 1/23/10
This recall does NOT include any peanut butter Turkey Hill uses in its products. Turkey Hill products do not include any peanut butter or peanut paste produced by the Peanut Corporation of America (PCA).
"Turkey Hill remains committed to our customers, the highest quality of our products, and food safety for our consumers" said Quintin Frey, president of Turkey Hill Dairy. "Yet we want to honor the FDA's request and for that reason, we have voluntarily recalled our Dynamic Duos Movie Night flavor."
