If you are about to have a nice bowl of ice cream, you might want to inspect it well — especially if you bought it from Weis Markets.
According to the FDA website, they have had to recall 10,869 containers of Weis Quality Cookies and Cream Ice Cream (the 48 oz. size) and 502 bulk containers of Klein’s Vanilla Dairy Ice Cream (the 3-gallon size) because they were contaminated.
They state, “Products may be contaminated with extraneous material, specifically metal filling equipment parts. There has been one report of a customer who discovered an intact piece of metal equipment in the Weis Quality Cookies and Cream Ice Cream. There is concern of an additional piece of equipment present in the ice cream product(s) possibly presenting a choking hazard.”
These items were sold in 197 Weis Markets located in Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and West Virginia.
The containers of ice cream will have a sell-by date of 10/28/21, and that date is located on the bottom of the container. If you think you may have one of those ice cream containers, they allow customers to return them for a full refund.
