2 Recalls of Cookies & Ice Cream for January 11, 2015

Two more recalls of products which chocolate -- platter of mixed cookies (some of which have chocolate) and another full line of ice cream. I suppose we should be grateful that it might not be full on ice cream weather here in the USA where our FDA lets me know about these recalls but still, Ice Cream Industry, what is going on?

You are welcomed, GlutenFreeHappyTummy. We figure the only way to enjoy chocolate is to be safe and knowing about recalls is one good way to stay safe.
