The products were sold in Ontario, according to the Canadian Food Inspection Agency.
“The potential metal pieces are very small and have a very low risk of posing a choking hazard,” stated CEO Brian Kerr.
According to the Canadian Food Inspection Agency, the affected products — with production codes found on the edge — are:
“No other flavours of ice cream are involved, and the withdrawal is limited to the production codes above,” Kerr said. “We are making this voluntary withdrawal out of an abundance of caution, because the safety of our customers and your confidence in our products has always been our number one priority. Kawartha Dairy has not received any consumer complaints regarding this issue and no injuries have been reported.”
The CFIA says there have been no reported injuries associated with the consumption of the ice cream products.
Anyone who purchased the products should throw them out or return them to the location where they were purchased for a full refund. You can also email Kawartha Dairy for a full refund or if you have further questions.
