Cass-Clay Creamery Issues Allergy Alert on Undeclared Eggs in Peppermint Bon Bon Ice Cream

The Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services received the following news release regarding Peppermint Bon Bon Ice Cream. Cass-Clay Creamery of Fargo, N.D., is voluntarily recalling Hornbacher's Peppermint Bon Bon Light (half gallon/1.89 liter), Schroeder Peppermint Bon Bon (1.75 quart/1.65 liter) and SunnyBrook Peppermint Bon Bon Light (half gallon/1.89 liter) because these products may contain undeclared eggs. People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to eggs run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reactions if they consume these products.

The recalled products were distributed in Iowa, North Dakota, Minnesota and Wisconsin. All code dates for these products are affected.

No illnesses have been reported to date.

The recall was initiated after a flavoring containing egg yolks was discovered in the products, and the ingredient statement on the product packages did not reveal the presence of eggs.

No other products produced by Cass-Clay Creamery are affected.

Consumers are advised to return these products to the store where they were purchased for a full refund. Anyone requiring more information is advised to call the Consumer Affairs line at 1-800-441-4269.
