Supermarket giants Coles and Woolworths have been forced to pull a popular ice cream from the shelves over contamination fears.
Halo Top issued a recall for its Plant Based Caramel Chocolate Pretzel Ice Cream (473ml) which is available at independent retailers – including IGA – in NSW, Queensland and South Australia.
It is also sold at Coles and Woolworths stores nationally.
Food Standards Australia/New Zealand posted the alert online which indicated the product had been recalled over potential chemical (solvent) contamination.
“Food products containing solvents may cause illness/injury if consumed,” the organisation wrote.
Customers have been urged not to eat the product and return it to the store they purchased it from for a full refund.
The item has a best before of August 11, 2022.
In July another Halo Top product was pulled from the shelves due to incorrect labelling.
In a small number of cases, a dairy-free labelled lid was put on a tub of dairy chocolate frozen dessert.
