Multiple Kawartha Ice Cream Products Are Being Recalled Due To 'Pieces Of Metal'
Check your freezers, Canada! Multiple Kawartha ice cream products are being recalled by the company, due to the possible presence of pieces of metal.
In a notice shared on November 29, the federal government confirmed that Kawartha Dairy Limited was recalling a number of its products.
The reason for the recall, per the notice, is due to “extraneous material,” which in this case refers to pieces of metal.
Affected products include the Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Ice Cream and Mint Chip Ice Cream, sold in 1.5-litre and 11.4-litre containers.

The affected products were sold in Ontario.
No injuries have been associated with the ice cream, but the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) continues to investigate, which could lead to additional recalls.
“Consumers should not consume and retailers, restaurants, and institutions should not sell or use the recalled products described below,” reads the statement.
If you do have any of the affected items at home, you are advised to throw them out or return them to the location where they were purchased.
This isn’t the first time in the past few years an ice cream product has been recalled due to metal pieces.
Back in 2019, the Agropur Dairy Cooperative urged customers to dispose of some of their products for the exact same reason. Yikes!
