Supervalu pulls Tin Roof Sundae Ice Cream from shelves as part of peanut butter recall
MINNEAPOLIS Amid the nationwide wave of recalls following revelations of unsanitary conditions at Peanut Corporation of America’s Blakely, Ga., processing plant, and salmonella contamination in products made there, Supervalu announced Saturday that it would pull several brands of Tin Roof Sundae Ice Cream from its shelves.
The supermarket operator sold the ice cream at its Bigg’s, Cub Foods, Farm Fresh, Hornbacher’s and Shoppers Food & Pharmacy banners. It said the ice cream has not been directly linked to the salmonella outbreak.
Supermarket chains across the country have voluntarily recalled products made with peanut butter from the Blakely plant.
