Ice Cream Bars Sold At ALDI and Meijer Part of Massive Recall
In the last six months I have fallen in love with shopping at ALDI. It's no secret that as kids grow older, they eat more, so getting the groceries we need at the cheapest price possible is my number one priority.
As a family with a freezer full of ALDI products, including their Sundae Shoppe ice cream, I panicked a little when I read about this massive recall of ice cream bars. I will definitely be running home to check my freezer today, because my 4-year-old currently thinks she needs to be eating ice cream for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
According to the FDA's website, a recall has been issued due to the possibility of listeria contamination on "orange cream bars, chocolate coated vanilla ice cream bars, and variety packs that include chocolate coated vanilla ice cream bars" that were sold at several stores across country.
This recall includes ALDI's Sundae Shoppe brand and Meijer's Purple Cow brand ice cream bars. The recalled products were produced by Fieldbrook Food Corporation and "have a production date of January 1, 2017 to December 31, 2017 and a “best by” date of January 1, 2018 to December 31, 2018" according to the FDA.
If you have a recalled product, bring it back to the store you purchased at for a refund. You can read more details about the official recall here.
