Oh great, now mint chocolate chip ice cream can kill me

Turkey Hill Dairy is voluntarily recalling 1,200 cartons of mint chocolate chip All Natural Ice Cream because it contains undeclared coconut. People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to coconut run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume this product.

Turkey Hill has not received any reports of illness or allergice reaction caused by this product, but did the recall after it was notified about the undeclared allergen by a consumer.

The 48-ounce cartons were distributed in Harrisburg, Lancaster, lebanon, York, Wilkes Barre-Scranton and Philadelphia through direct distribution by Turkey Hill to the following stores: Turkey Hill Minit Markets, Cold Cut Hut (Philadelphia), Shady Maple Farm Market (Blue Ball) and John Herr’s Village Market (Millersville). An investigation determined the coconut was introduced to the ice cream during the last 32 minutes of the mint chocolate chip production run on Sept. 28.

Consumers who recently purchased this ice cream should examine their carton for the UPC code 0-20735-11203-8 and sell by code 09/28/2013 42-092 L3/56. If you have a container carrying this information, return it to the place of purchase for a full refund.
