H-E-B Ice Cream May Contain Wood Fragments, Recalled from Supermarkets

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.

As company executives have declared that no one has so far complained of injuries or other adverse reactions caused by the potentially hazardous ice cream. Even so, in an effort to place customer safety first, the recall was deemed necessary, and was promptly ordered throughout all the H-E-B grocery stores found across Texas and northeast Mexico.

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.
