Starting 2015 with More Chocolate Recalls

So sad to not even get past the first Sunday in the new year without recalls from the FDA related to chocolate.  Remember that if you don't live in the USA but you are familiar with this product to check your local and state agencies to see if there are recalls in your area as well.

Please note that the below recall includes more flavors that images that we've included; we have only included the chocolate containing labels.

Great Feeling Foods, LLC Recalls Groove Gluten-Free Ice Cream Cookie Sandwiches Because of Possible Health Risk

Consumer Contact: 503-329-2750

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE — DECEMBER 29, 2014 — Portland, OR — Great Feeling Foods, LLC of Portland, OR has issued a voluntary recall of all Groove Gluten-free Ice Cream Cookie Sandwiches produced between May 16, 2014 and December 20, 2014.

These products contain custard ice cream base produced and recalled by Snoqualmie Gourmet Ice Cream, Inc. as an ingredient.

Although healthy individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea, listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.

The products are sold in 3 fl. oz. single packs and 6 fl. oz. 2-packs and labeled as Groove.  The packages have “Best By” dates located on the bottom of the package with lot codes printed above the “Best By” dates.
