Guida's Milk And Ice Cream Withdraws Guida Label Lowfat Chocolate Half-Pint Containers
Guida's Milk & Ice Cream is conducting a voluntary recall of Guida Label Lowfat Chocolate (1/2% Milkfat) half-pints (product code 138).
The products are being recalled because they may contain a presence of food grade sanitizer containing less than 1% phosphoric acid, acetic acid, nitric acid, and organic acids which may cause a burning sensation in the mouth, stomach ache, nausea and dizziness.
Approximately 17,750 half-pints were distributed primarily to schools, some hospitals and retail accounts in New York, Connecticut, Rhode Island and Massachusetts.
The issue was a result of human error in not following our Company's standard operating procedures. Guida's has taken the necessary corrective action to prevent this from occurring again.
We have received several reports of children experiencing illness (stomach ache, nausea) after drinking the product.
Consumers that have the product should not consume it and return it to the store and/or distributor.
This recall is being made in cooperation with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
