Helados La Tapatia, Inc., of Fresno, California, is voluntarily recalling 13 milk based ice cream products manufactured during the limited time frame of October 8, 2015, through October 16, 2015, (see separate UPC Inventory list provided herewith for detailed description) due to the inclusion of egg and soy ingredients which were not identified on product packaging and which are potential allergens to some people. The products were distributed to select retail stores in a limited area of Northern California. The products are sold under the brand name of Helados La Tapatia.

Helados La Tapatia is also voluntarily recalling its 4oz Cookies "n" Cream bar due to the undeclared Wheat and Soy and the 4oz Granola bar due to undeclared Almonds and Soy. These products were distributed in Arizona, California, Nevada, and Washington. The products are sold under the brand name of Helados La Tapatia.

People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to soy, eggs and almonds run the risk of a serious life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume these products.

No illnesses or adverse reactions have been reported to date. The recall was the result of a routine inspection program by the U.S. FDA.

A separate UPC Inventory of the products and their UPC codes is provided.

The production and distribution of the identified products have been suspended until accurate labeling for the products is achieved. Consumers who have purchased the Helados La Tapatia products are urged to return the products to the place of purchase for a full refund.

Consumers with questions may contact the company at 1-559-441-1105 Monday through Friday, 6:00a.m. - 5:00p.m. (PDT); Saturday, 9:00a.m. - 5:00p.m. (PDT). Consumers can also contact the company at
