Ice cream is tasty, but a recall touts it as a defective product

West Virginia residents who love ice cream may be interested in knowing that Nestle has recently recalled roughly 10,000 cartons of ice cream. The recall is due to the fact that the package was mislabeled in the factory. The defective product recall affects only chocolate peanut butter flavored ice cream in the Haagen-Dazs brand. The best-by date for the containers of ice cream being recalled is May 13, 2015. In addition, the recall only affects the 14-ounce ice cream cartons.

Nestle says that, while the ice cream lids left the warehouse labeled accurately, the ingredient list is not correct. The ingredient list is actually for chocolate chip ice cream. Therefore, it mentions nothing related to the fact that the ice cream inside the container contains peanuts.

This may not be a problem for some residents here in West Virginia. However, for those who suffer from peanut allergies, they know how huge of a problem this mistake could be. When a person with a severe peanut allergy consumes peanut, their esophagus could begin to swell, making it difficult to breathe. If not treated in a timely manner, it could result in their death.

For individuals who have less severe allergies, they may only endure a rash. Regardless of the severity, it is a serious matter. Nestle realizes this, which is why they immediately recalled the ice cream containers as soon as they realized the mistake. The ice cream was made and distributed on May 13, 2014, to more than 10 states, including here in West Virginia.

When an individual in West Virginia is hurt in any way due to a defective product, such as this recalled ice cream, the victim may be entitled to seek and obtain financial compensation. This money can then be used to pay for past and future medical bills, lost wages and other incurred costs from the injury. In addition, a successful claim can essentially hold the manufacturer accountable for the harm caused through product liability laws.
