Nearly 14,000 Containers of Ice Cream Recalled in 8 States

Updated: Jul. 09, 2024

At the height of summer sales season, the FDA cited foreign matter discovered inside two tubs of a popular flavor.

Ice cream is an iconic summer treat for a reason—and whether your go-to is soft-serve or hand-dipped, the last thing you expect is an unfamiliar, even inedible bite. However, this week the US Food & Drug Administration shared that a few fans of cookie dough flavor may have been in danger of experiencing a mouthfeel they weren’t quite expecting from one widely distributing ice cream brand.

In a report this week, the FDA reveals that parent company Casper’s Ice Cream, based in Utah, has recalled 13,764 1.75-quart tubs of its Red Button Vintage Creamery brand Cookie Dough Ice Cream. The reason for the recall: “Foreign object, rubber, found in two tubs.”

It’s reported that the recall is “complete,” which likely means all retailers who sold it have been notified and perhaps some contacted customers if they could trace the purchase. However, consumers should also be advised that the recalled ice cream was reportedly distributed in Arizona, Colorado, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, Nevada, Utah and Wyoming. Recalled containers may be found by checking the label for the lot number, 092-24-568, and the UPC code, 0 77865 01008 6.

The severity of this recall has not yet been determined by the FDA. The source of the rubber is not confirmed, but it’s possible a piece of manufacturing equipment broke off inside the batch.

If you purchased the recalled ice cream, you should throw it away or return it to its place of purchase for a full refund. If you have additional questions, Red Button Vintage Creamery can be contacted on their website here.

In addition to the products under the Red Button Vintage brand, Casper’s proprietary brand is said to be known for their “fat boy” ice cream sandwiches.
