Kroger recall: Ice cream has potentially dangerous ingredient
Midwest grocery chain Kroger has issued a recall of some of its ice cream because the labels do not disclose the presence of tree nuts, which can cause serious, even life-threatening problems for someone who is allergic. The ice cream was sold in 17 states.
Tree nuts include cashews, walnuts and pecans -- but not peanuts -- and can produce serious, life-threatening reactions to an allergic person. For someone with such food allergies, the label is the first line of defense.
