FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE -- February 26, 2009 -- Umpqua Dairy Products, Co of Roseburg, OR is expanding their current voluntary recall of Tin Roof Sundae Ice Cream, Premium Lite Tin Roof Sundae ice cream, and Pints of Tin Roof Sundae Ice Cream, because they have the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella. The ice cream products were manufactured using peanuts recalled by Peanut Corporation of American, Blakely, GA and Plainview, TX facilities, and distributed by Pecan Deluxe Candy Company. Salmonella is an organism which 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.
The affected products were distributed to retail grocery stores throughout Oregon, Washington and Northern California. Umpqua Dairy is currently in the process of notifying all of the retailers who purchased these flavors and asking them to voluntarily remove all Tin Roof Sundae products from store shelves. Consumers who have purchased the products should check their freezer for the product.
The following 1.75 qt products with the sell by date codes listed below are subject to this recall. The sell by code is listed on the bottom of each carton.
|Item||Size||UPC Code||Sell By Date Code|
|Tin Roof Sundae Ice Cream||1.75 qt||71203-08773||All codes prior to and including 010610|
|Lite Tin Roof Sundae I.C.||1.75 qt||71203-08968||All codes prior to and including 010610|
The following pint containers with a Julian code manufacturing date listed below are subject to this recall. The Julian date is listed on the bottom of each carton.
|Item||Size||UPC Code||Julian Date Code|
|Tin Roof Sundae Ice Cream||Pint||71203-08044||All codes prior to and including 08346|
No known illnesses have been reported to date in connection with these products. The recall was initiated after it was determined that the peanut product received from Pecan Deluxe Candy Company was manufactured by Peanut Corporation of America, Blakely, GA and Plainview, TX facilities. Umpqua Dairy Products, Co. has informed FDA of its actions and is fully cooperating with the Agency.
Umpqua Dairy requests that if consumers have any of these products in their home freezers with these code dates, they should discard the product and send the bottom with code date information back to Umpqua Dairy for a full refund.
