  • Belmont Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Ice Cream packed in 1.5 quart containers stamped with a UPC code of “4149816310” and date codes of “13340” or “13341” and marked “Best by Date: Dec. 7, 2014”

The company is working to determine the type of nut allergen and conducting an internal audit to determine possible cause.

About Tree Nut Allergies:
For some people, nuts (including tree nuts such as cashews, chestnuts, Brazil nuts, hazelnuts, pecans, pine nuts and walnuts as well as ground nuts such as peanuts) can be a source of dangerous, urgent and potentially deadly, allergic reactions requiring immediate medical intervention. Anaphylactic Shock could occur in consumers who are allergic to walnuts or other tree nuts within a very short time, potentially leading to severe injury and/or death.

If you suspect Anaphylactic Shock, call 9-1-1 or other local emergency number for immediate transport to a medical center. If trained and an emergency kit is available, it may be appropriate to give an injectable drug such as Epinephrine (also known as adrenaline or adrenalin) to the affected individual. Trade names of these products include EpiPen, Twinject, Adrenaclick, Anapen, Jext, Allerject and Auvi-Q. Please note: even patients who are apparently stabilized should still go to hospital for emergency evaluation. Further treatment is often necessary.
