According to the FDA, Syracuse, New York-based Byrne Dairy, Inc. has recalled its half-gallon cartons of Byrne Dairy Mighty Fine Chocolate Ice Cream under “Last Date of Sale” 10/4/2024 due to the potential presence of peanuts, an allergen not declared in the ingredient statement.
Individuals who live with an allergy or sensitivity to peanuts are warned against consuming the product, as they could otherwise suffer a major, possibly life-threatening allergic reaction.
First announced by Byrne Dairy, Inc. on January 30, 2024, the voluntary recall covers 250 half gallon units of the product, which were distributed and made available for purchase in retail stores across Upstate New York.
As can be referenced in the product photo attached to the FDA announcement, affected Byrne Dairy Mighty Fine Chocolate Ice Cream comes in half-gallon cardboard containers with the name of the product prominently displayed. The lettering “Last Date of Sale: 10/4/2024” can be found along the container’s side.
Officials took action after receiving a consumer complaint that described peanut butter being included in the product, which was distributed in packaging bearing no indication of the allergen’s presence. Further investigation into the issue also revealed that the brand’s Chocolate Ice Cream may also include undeclared peanut butter.
While the company has not been made aware of any illnesses or allergic reactions to date of the announcement, consumers who may have an affected product are asked to refrain from eating it. The item should either be discarded or brought back to the point of purchase to receive a total refund. Questions about the recall may be directed to Byrne Dairy, Inc. representative Ashley Casey at (315) 627-1319 between 9:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. Eastern time. The company can also be reached via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
