Anderson’s Frozen Custard Inc. is recalling its “Pumpkin Ice Cream Pies” because they may contain undeclared peanuts.
People who have allergies or sensitivities to peanuts run the risk of serious or life threatening allergic reaction if they consume these products, according to a recall notice posted on the Food and Drug Administration’s website.
“The pumpkin pies were distributed in Erie and Niagara (New York) counties, through Anderson’s locations and through Oliver’s Chocolates in Batavia,” according to the recall notice. “The product comes in a 9-inch, clear dome plastic container. All lot numbers are included.”
The recall was initiated after it was discovered that ice cream pies containing peanuts were distributed in packaging that did not declare the presence of peanuts.
Consumers who purchased Anderson’s pumpkin ice cream pies are urged to return them to any Anderson’s location for a full refund. Consumers with questions may contact the Williamsville, NY, company at 716-875-6805.
