Two flavours of Kawartha Dairy ice cream have been recalled due to the possible presence of metal bits in the chocolate chips.
In a letter to customers on their Facebook Page, published Tuesday Nov. 25, 2020, Brian Kerr, CEO of Kawartha Dairy says, “We wanted to let you know that Kawartha Dairy is voluntarily withdrawing a limited number of two flavours of ice cream, after we detected the possibility of small metal pieces in the chocolate chips provided by one of our suppliers. The potential metal pieces are very small and have a very low risk of posing a choking hazard.”
Both the Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Ice Cream and Mint Chip Ice Cream flavours have been recalled by the company.
