Penn State's University Creamery Recalling Ice Cream

Plastic objects were found in the ice cream

The University Creamery at Penn State is recalling all ice cream and frozen yogurt made between May 16, 2012, and August 11, 2012, because of isolated incidents involving reports of small plastic foreign objects in the product. 

The recalled ice cream was manufactured and sold from the Berkey Creamery on the University Park campus of Penn State and also was available for purchase on the internet from the Creamery’s Website. 

In mid-August, University police began a criminal investigation into several isolated incidents involving reports of small foreign objects in ice cream manufactured by the University Creamery on the University Park campus. The Creamery has received three reports of consumers finding small plastic pieces in the ice cream, specifically, three small pieces of plastic less than 21 mm (about .82 inches) in size. 

While the reports have only related to half-gallon containers, the Creamery is extending the recall to cover all ice cream and frozen yogurt in all container sizes made during the time period listed above. 

Ice cream subject to the recall will bear a BEST IF USED BY date on the label falling on or between Feb. 10, 2013, and Aug. 11, 2013. Consumers who have purchased ice cream covered by this recall are urged to not eat the ice cream and to return any product subject to the recall to the place of purchase for a full refund or exchange. Consumers with questions may contact the Creamery at 1-855-677-0464 (toll-free). 

No illnesses or injuries have been reported in connection with this situation. Anyone who believes he may have ingested an object should immediately consult a healthcare professional. 

An independent investigation of the reports of foreign objects conducted for the Creamery, while not conclusive, suggests that the objects did not enter the ice cream during the manufacturing process. 

The Creamery has extended the recall to cover not only the dates when the ice cream was made that were subject to the reports, but to also include all ice cream made during a buffer period after the last known production date, up to the point when the Creamery instituted enhanced security measures to protect against the chances of undetected objects being placed in the ice cream. 

These measures include limiting access to production and packaging areas, increased surveillance systems, purchase of an X-ray device and metal detectors, and notification of ingredient suppliers. In the near future, the Creamery also will move to a tamper-resistant packaging solution.

Pampered Chef Recalls Ice Cream Dippers

The end of the scoop handle can fly off

The Pampered Chef is recalling about 20,000 ice cream dippers. When the liquid-filled ice cream scoop is exposed to warm water, the cap and seal at the end of the scoop handle can fly off with substantial force, posing an impact injury hazard to nearby consumers.

The Pampered Chef has received 16 reports including damage to kitchen items and six reports of personal injuries including lacerations, bruises and redness caused by caps coming off the base of the handle.

The dippers are metallic gray aluminum with a plastic dome-shaped cap on the base of the handle. “Pampered Chef” is imprinted in the cap. The ice cream dippers measure around seven inches in length. A non-toxic liquid is sealed inside the handle of the product which conducts the heat of your hand to more easily scoop hard ice cream.

The dippers were sold by Pampered Chef consultants and online at www.pamperedchef.com from July 2010 through September 2010 for about $15. They were made in the U.S.

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled ice cream dippers and contact The Pampered Chef for instructions on obtaining a replacement or refund. Consumers can also contact their Pampered Chef consultant for replacement and refund information.

For additional information, contact The Pampered Chef toll-free at (877) 917-2433 between 7 a.m. and 11 p.m. CT Monday through Friday and between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. CT on Saturday or visit the firm’s website at http://www.pamperedchef.com/recall/cust info collection.jsp.

Ice Cream Shops in Meltdown Over Fox 5 Report

D'Lites Emporium sues after being inducted into "Hall of Shame"

A dispute over "overrun" - the air pumped into ice cream - has led a franchisee of a low-calorie ice cream chain to accuse Rupert Murdoch's News Corp. and Fox 5 News of defaming it in a "disparaging" broadcast "assault."  

The suit was brought by Matthew Prince, a restaurateur who invested in three D'Lites Emporium franchises on New York's Long Island, only to become enraged when Fox 5 News “inducted” the sweet shops into its “Hall of Shame,” reporting that independent tests had found higher levels of fattening substances than the stores claimed.

In his lawsuit, Prince says the D'Lites ice cream is lower in sugar, fat, carbohydrates and cholesterol, and is a healthier alternative to traditional ice cream.

“Since it’s [sic] founding in 1982, in Plantation, Florida, DEI has provided diet friendly ice cream that is just as creamy and tasty as traditional ice cream products,” the typo-infested suit states. “DEI products are designed to be attractive sweets for diet conscience [sic] shoppers.”

Prince said he had invested more than $1 million in the healthy ice cream business only to see it melt away as Fox 5's Arnold Diaz featured D'Lites on his eight-minute “Shame, Shame, Shame” segment, telling viewers that D'Lites was “selling a lie.”

Liquidity an issue

Prince's suit argues that ice cream is “made up of three components – the ice cream mix (formula), air, and refrigeration.”

It makes the indisputable assertion that, when it melts, ice cream becomes a liquid. When that happens, air escapes and the melted ice cream takes up less space than it did when it was frozen.

Prince argues that in its testing of his stores' ice cream, Fox 5 used a quantity of melted ice cream that did not correspond to the appropriate volume of frozen ice cream. 

“The only fair way to accurately measure the nutritional value of D’Lites’ ice cream is to measure by the volume of the ice cream product in its frozen state as served to the customer,” the suit argues.

Prince also claims that ice cream, because it contains milk, is “in a constant state of change.”

“In recognition of the extraordinary difficulty in serving a product who’s [sic] properties are in a constant state of flux, the FDA allows nutritional labels for ice cream to be off by as much as 20%,” the suit states.

News Corporation owns The Wall Street Journal, the New York Post and numerous other media outlets.

Ice Cream Fans Suffer Melt-Down Over 'All Natural' Claims

Class action accuses Ben & Jerry's, Breyers of misleading customers

Two classes of ice-cream buyers have standing to sue Ben & Jerry's and Breyers for using "all natural" labels on ice cream made with synthetic chemical processes, a federal judge ruled.

The plaintiffs in the case allege that Ben & Jerry's and Breyers misrepresented their ice cream containing “Dutch” chocolate as “all natural” when in fact it is processed with potassium carbonate, a man-made ingredient.

The suit notes that on August 12, 2010, the Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI) sent a letter to the ice cream companies identifying about 50 products, including chocolate ice cream and frozen yogurt, that it said were mislabeled.

In September 2010, Ben & Jerry's agreed to phase out the use of the “all natural” phrase for products containing synthetic ingredients.

The suit, filed in federal district court in Northern California charged the companies with fraud, false advertising and unjust enrichment and raised the possibility that Ben & Jerry's might at some unknown time in the future begin using the “all natural” claim again.

No damage?

The companies had filed a motion seeking dismissal of the suits, claiming among other things that the plaintiffs had not shown any damages.

The ice cream companies also argued that the plaintiffs could not reasonably claim they had suffered economic injury since, by their own admission, they not only bought but also consumed the ice cream in question.

If they were dissatisfied with their ice cream-eating experience, the companies argued, they should have applied for a refund under the companies' “satisfaction guaranteed or your money back policy.”

The plaintiffs, on the other hand, concede that while they have indeed purchased and consumed many pints of the suspect ice cream, they did so under the false belief that the frozen confection was “all natural” and that it would never have passed their lips had they been apprised of its allegedly synthetic nature.

Judge Phyllis J. Hamilton denied the companies' motions, allowing the case to proceed.
