Klein’s Ice Cream Safe to Eat, After 502 Cartons Were Destroyed after Piece of Metal was Found in One
By Yehudit Garmaise
After the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) said in a statement that it has issued a recall for 502 bulk, three-gallon containers of Klein’s Vanilla Dairy Ice Cream after at least one customer found a piece of metal in the product, the heimish ice cream company issued its own statement shortly thereafter, saying that, “the recall circulating in the media does not affect any of our items in circulation.”
Klein’s Real Kosher ice cream continued to say that the 3-gallon Vanilla ice cream cartons that were recalled are stamped with a code: 0302, and were never intended to be sold, as they have “been destroyed as a precautionary measure.”
Earlier today, ABC7NY reported that Weis Markets, a grocery store in New York, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania had cartons of the ice cream that may have been “contaminated with extraneous material, specifically metal filling equipment parts,” according to the FDA, but Klein’s later said that none of the ice cream cartons in question are currently in any stores’ freezers.
“Rest assured that all Klein’s products currently available are perfectly safe for consumption,” Klein’s said in a statement.
