LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The Comfy Cow is voluntarily recalling nine flavors of its ice cream in four states.
In a release, the Louisville-based company said it is recalling pints of Banana Puddin Y’all, Chocolate Squared2, Cookies and Cream, Cow Trax, Double Fold Vanilla, Georgia Butter Pecan, Intense Dark Chocolate, Salted Caramel and Strawberry Fields Forever due to a potential contamination of E. coli.
Routine testing in mid-July showed positive tests for E. coli and high counts of coliform. E. coli bacteria can cause diarrhea and dehydration. Most people who are infected recover, but the bacteria can be deadly. No illnesses have been reported to date.
Comfy Cow CEO Tim Koons-McGee issued a statement saying safety is a priority for the company.
The Comfy Cow is taking this voluntary precautionary measure in order to ensure complete consumer safety. Our top priority is guaranteeing the safety of all our loyal customers. All of the affected flavors have been removed from our 8 local Louisville area Scoop Shop locations.”
The products affected are listed below:
The pints of ice cream were distributed between June 13 and July 21. They were sold primarily in retail stores in Kentucky, Missouri, Indiana and Tennessee.
Anyone who bought the impacted flavors of Comfy Cow ice cream is urged to return it to the place of purchase for a full refund. You can also throw it away.
Consumers with questions may contact the production facility at 502-384-2556, Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. EDT.
