Blue Bunny Recalls Ice Cream Product
Date posted - October 12, 2016
Wells Enterprises in Le Mars has issued a voluntary recall of some of their Blue Bunny “Hoppin’ Holidoodle” ice cream due to concerns about possible listeria contamination. That flavor of Blue Bunny ice cream contains snicker-doodle cookie dough made by a Garner, Iowa company.
The recalled product is a seasonal holiday flavor with what Wells calls “very limited distribution” in six states, including Iowa. No illnesses have been linked to the ice cream that’s being recalled.
KIWA talked with Jared Welter of Sheldon Hy-Vee, and Brent Kraft from Sheldon’s Fareway. Both store managers assured us that none of the recalled products made its way onto their shelves, and none has been sold in the local stores.
Consumers who shop elsewhere, and have purchased Wells Hoppin Holidoodle ice cream have should check the side of their ice cream packages to check for “best if used by” dates of 2/13/18 and 2/14/18. The following lot numbers are part of the recall: Lot 60001 MM 19115 6228 and Lot 60001 MM 191156229.
Wells stresses that no other Blue Bunny Products are being recalled.
