Popsicle Recall: Have You Checked Your Freezer?
To end the summer, Unilever United States, Inc. has issued a limited voluntary Popsicle recall applicable only to 24 count boxes of Popsicle brand Sugar Free Orange, Cherry and Grape flavored ice pops.
A number of these boxes improperly contain Popsicle brand Sugar Free Fudgsicle and Creamsicle ice pops, both of which contain milk, a known allergen that can result in a serious or life-threatening reaction if consumed by the wrong person.
The Popsicle recall appears to be the sole result of a manufacturing error, which resulted in the Fudgsicle and Creamsicle ice pops being placed in packaging that fails to alert consumers to the presence of milk.
Unilever has not indicated whether the recalled ice pops are otherwise dangerous to those who are not sensitive to milk.
The offending Popsicle brand ice pops were manufactured in the United States and sold in Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Louisiana, Michigan, Oregon, Texas, Utah, Washington, and Wisconsin.
Covered products contain 24 1.65 fluid ounce (48.7-milliliter) ice pops and are marked with a UPC code of 7756702295, with date codes of OCT0312GCD, OCT0412GCD, OCT0512GCD, OCT0612GCD and OCT0712GCD.
If you have purchased a product affected by the Popsicle recall, it is requested that you discard the product and retain the outer box. You may call (800) 896-99552 to request a replacement coupon. If you or a family member have fallen ill after consuming a listed product, also consider reporting your experience to the Food and Drug Administration.
