After receiving a recall notice from a former supplier of peanut butter base, Toft’s has issued a voluntary recall on 48 oz cartons and 3-gallon tubs of Buckeye Bites Ice Cream with expiration dates of March 14, 2013, or before.
Any 48 oz or 3-gallon tub of Toft’s Buckeye Bites with an expiration date after March 14, 2013, is NOT involved in this recall due to us switching peanut butter suppliers on March 15, 2012. Toft’s Prime Time Buckeye Bites Ice Cream has been distributed throughout the state of Ohio and Southern Michigan.
The recalled product contains a peanut butter base that contains peanut butter manufactured by Sunland, Inc, which has just announced an expansion of a voluntary recall covering peanut products made in their Portales, New Mexico plant. Sunland’s peanut butter products have been linked to Salmonella outbreaks across the United States dating back to March 1, 2010. However, Ohio has yet to report any illnesses from Sunland’s recall. (Salmonella is an organism that can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Healthy persons infected with Salmonella often experience fever, diarrhea (which may be bloody), nausea, vomiting, and abdominal pain. In rare circumstances, infection with Salmonella can result in the organism getting into the bloodstream and producing more severe illnesses such as arterial infections (i.e., infected aneurysms), endocarditis, and arthritis. For more information on Salmonella, please visit the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Website at HTTP://WWW.CDC.GOV ).
