Representatives of the supermarket chain headquartered in San Antonio, Texas, have voluntarily recalled H-E-B ice cream. It was feared that some of the frozen desserts may contain wood fragments.
The official website pertaining to the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) referred that, the recall refers solely to the Caramel Pecan Turtle Ice Cream, which is one of H-E-B's Creamy Creations, alongside other premium ice cream flavors, such as Rocky Road, Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough, Toasted Almond Fudge, Birthday Cake, Dulce de Leche or Banana Nut.
The frozen treats should include milk, dairy cream, chocolate, caramel and pecan nuts. However, it appears that there's a possibility that in the production line wood splinters have also reached the creamy dessert.
Similarly, back in January 2015, a Lysteria monocytogenes outbreak emerged among people who had consumed ice cream produced by Blue Bell Creameries. After complaints of 10 ill cases and three patients eventually succumbing to complications, Blue Bell ice cream was also removed from retail stores.
