Turkey Hill recalls 48 oz. containers of Dutch Chocolate Premium Ice Cream.

Lancaster County-based Turkey Hill Dairy will recall select 48. oz containers of its Dutch Chocolate Premium Ice Cream after the company discovered some of the packages contain Rocky Road Premium Ice Cream with undeclared ingredients.

The company announced on its website that the packages in question may contain almonds and eggs that could be harmful to people with food sensitivity or allergy to these ingredients.

All of the packages in question include the UPC Code 20735-42095 and a sell-by date of May 23, 2017 found printed on the bottom of the package.

"We apologize for this breakdown in our commitment to producing quality, wholesome products," the company said in a statement. "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."

Packages identified for recall are limited to those sold at select stores in PA., NY., NJ., MA., CT., DE., MD., VA., WV., OH., RI., ME., VT., MO., AL., NH., NC., SC., GA., MI., IN., KY,. MS., IL. and TN. All affected stores have been notified and instructed to remove the Dutch Chocolate Premium Ice Cream from their shelves.

Customers who purchased affected packages would only have been able to do so in store after September 8, 2016. Anyone who bought the product is eligible to return it to the place of purchase for a full refund or contact Turkey Hill Dairy at 1-800-MY-DAIRY for a replacement or refund.
