Two popular ice cream makers, Turkey Hill Dairy and Nestle, issued a recall for products last week because of a label mix-up and Listeria concerns, respectively.

Turkey Hill Dairy announced the recall in connection with a label mix-up where some 48-ounce containers of its Dutch Chocolate Premium ice cream may actually contain its Rocky Road Premium ice cream product.

The company stated the packages "may include undeclared ingredients of almonds and eggs, and could be harmful to people with food sensitivity or allergy to these ingredients." The UPC code of the ice cream is 20735-42095 with the "sell by date" of May 23, 2017.

The recalled packages are sold at select stores in Pennsylvania, New York, New Jersey, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, West Virginia, Ohio, Rhode Island, Maine, Vermont, Missouri, Alabama, New Hampshire, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Michigan, Indiana, Kentucky, Mississippi, Illinois, and Tennessee.

"All affected packages would have been purchased in store after (Sept. 8)," wrote Turkey Hill in its recall statement. "Turkey Hill Dairy has not received any reports of illness concerning this product recall. For consumers who are not allergic to almonds and eggs, there is no safety issue with the product.

"We apologize for this breakdown in our commitment to producing quality, wholesome products. We know you expect and deserve more from our brand. We will use this incident as an opportunity to re-evaluate and refine our processes," the Turkey Hill statement continued.

In a second ice cream recall last week, Nestle USA Inc. announced a voluntary recall of its Nestle Drumstick Club 16-count variety pack and 24-count vanilla pack after positive test results for Listeria monocytogenes appeared from equipment contact surfaces at a location on the production line where these products are made.

"There have been no positive test results for Listeria monocytogenes present in the Drumstick cones themselves," a Nestle statement said. "The products impacted by the voluntary recall were put into distribution inadvertently. No illnesses have been reported to date; the company is initiating this recall as a precautionary action to avoid any potential for consumer illness."

The recalled 16-count pack will have the UPC code of 72554-11096 with the "best before" dates of June 2-15, 2017. The recalled 24-count pack will have the UPC code of 72554-00160 with the "best before" dates of June 16-19, 2017, according to Nestle.

The company stated the products were produced at is Bakersfield, California, plant from Aug. 31 to Sept. 17.

Listeriosis is a serious infection usually caused by eating food contaminated with the bacterium Listeria monocytogenes, which primarily affects older adults, pregnant women, newborns, and adults with weakened immune systems.
