General Mills on Thursday recalled ten products from its Häagen-Dazs ice cream brand due to traces of phytopharmaceutical drugs in them.
The products concerned are Belgian Chocolate (8X460 ml), Vanilla Pecan Prem (8X460 ml), Macadamia Nut Brittle Prem (8X460 ml), Cookies&Cream (8X460 ml), Pralines&Cream (8X460 ml), Macadamia Nut Brittel (24X95 ml), Duo Belgian Choc&Vanilla (8X420 ml), Duo Vanilla Brown & Rasp (8X420 ml), Duo Vanilla Hazelnut & Car (8X420 ml) and Macadamia Nut Brittel ((12X4)X80 ml).
These were marketed in Belgium and Luxembourg by Carrefour, Resuma, Colruyt, Delfood, Delhaize, Delitraiteur, Makro, Match and Cora, between 17 May and 3 August in jars, minicups and cardboard boxes.
During a test on the products, the manufacturer, General Mills, found traces of ethylene oxide, a carcinogenic pesticide banned in Europe. According to the company, a vanilla supplier is the source of the problem.
It is therefore recommended not to consume the product and to take it back to the store, where it will be reimbursed, General Mills said.
