Winn-Dixie Issues Recall On Ice Cream Bars
You scream, I scream, we all scream for ice cream, then we get abdominal cramps and serious digestive issues. The last part is what officials with Southeastern Grocers, the parent company of Winn-Dixie, are trying to prevent. The store has announced a voluntary recall of certain Winn-Dixie brand ice cream bars.
The voluntary recall was announced yesterday by the Jacksonville Florida based grocery store chain. The recall applies to Winn-Dixie Ice Cream Bars sold in 12-count packages at stores throughout Louisiana and other southern states.
If you want to check and see if you have the potentially tainted bars in your freezer you can check the universal product code on the packaging. The product's UPC code is 2114021745. The product in question is sold in 12-count packages.
In the official notice, the recall was put in place because of the "possible" presence of listeria. This is the second recall notice the company has announced in the past two weeks. In late December Winn-Dixie customers were advised of another potential listeria threat in packages of the store brand biscuits.
In either case, the ice cream bars or the biscuits, if you have a product that matches the products mentioned in the recall you are encouraged to discard those products even if the "best by date" is still good.
In most cases, the store will offer a refund or replacement for products affected by this recall. If you have questions or concerns about the recall contact the SEG Customer Call Center toll-free at 866-946-6349, from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. Mon.-Fri. and 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturdays.
