Batches Of Haagen-Dazs Ice Cream Recalled – Detection Of 2-Chloroethanol.

The implicated batches of Häagen-Dazs ice cream listed in the table below are being recalled due to the detection of 2-chloroethanol in one of the ingredients used in their manufacture.

2-Chloroethanol is a recognised reaction product of ethylene oxide. Ethylene oxide in turn is a pesticide that is not permitted for use in foods sold within the EU, but however, is approved for use by other countries outside the EU.

Although the consumption of the contaminated batches does not pose an acute risk to health, there is an increased risk if there is continued consumption of similar contaminated food over a long period of time. Therefore, exposure to this substance needs to be minimised.

Point-of-sale recall notices will be displayed in stores supplied with the implicated batches.
