If you're planning on enjoying some sweet ice cream on this summer day, you should definitely check the container it came in — because there's a big Comfy Cow recall happening as we speak. The Kentucky-based ice cream chain announced that it has recalled some of its top-selling flavors, due to possible contamination by E. coli.
Comfy Cow said in a statement to the Food and Drug Administration that the recall applies to store-bought pints of the flavors Banana Puddin Y'all, Chocolate Squared2, Cookies and Cream, Cow Trax, Double Fold Vanilla, Georgia Butter Pecan, Intense Dark Chocolate, Strawberry Fields Forever, and Salted Caramel. Three-gallon bulk containers of Georgia Butter Pecan were also recalled. Yikes!
Comfy Cow says the products in question were sold between June 13 and June 21 in retail stores in Kentucky, Missouri, Indiana, and Tennessee. So if you live in any of those four states and purchased those Comfy Cow pints during that time period, you are advised to throw away these ice cream pints or to return them for a full refund.
