Turkey Hill Ice Cream Recall Due to Risk of Metal Shavings

Turkey Hill is recalling specific ice cream flavors due to a risk that they may be contaminated with metal shavings, posing a serious risk of choking or lacerations for consumers.  

The Turkey Hill ice cream recall was announced by the FDA on October 4, after it was discovered that metal fragments may have entered the ice cream during production.

Neither Turkey Hill nor the FDA have identified the source of the problem or how the company became aware of the metal shavings in the ice cream. At this time, no injuries or adverse event reports involving problems with the ice cream have been disclosed either.

Metal shavings in food can be mildly to extremely hazardous depending upon the size and type of metal consumed. If the metal shavings are large enough they can cause lacerations of the mouth and if swallowed it can pose lacerations to the bowels. Additionally, some consumers have allergic reactions to ingesting certain metals causing immediate medical attention.
