Woolworths Recalls Peanut Butter Dairy Ice Cream Due To Aflatoxin Levels

Woolworths, a popular retailer, has announced the immediate recall of its Peanut Butter Dairy Ice Cream. The decision comes after the discovery of higher-than-regulated levels of Aflatoxin in some South African peanut butter products earlier this month.

In a statement, Woolworths clarified that only their peanut butter ice cream is affected, while all other products containing peanut butter, including their range of Peanut Butter, are safe for consumption.

Woolworths reassured customers that their peanut butter has been tested for Aflatoxin and found to be safe. Aflatoxins are naturally occurring toxins that need to be consumed in very high quantities to be toxic to humans. ]

As a precautionary measure, Woolworths has thoroughly assessed all secondary products containing peanut butter, such as biscuits, sauces, pretzels, energy bars, and ice cream. The recall of the Peanut Butter Dairy Ice Cream was initiated after it was found to exceed the legal limit of aflatoxin levels.

Customers who have purchased the affected product are advised to return it to their local store for a full refund. Woolworths emphasised its commitment to exceptional quality and strict food safety management processes. These processes ensure that all food produced, packaged, and sold by Woolworths meets their stringent quality standards.

Both Woolworths and Pick n Pay prioritize the health and safety of their customers. They encourage anyone with concerns to return the affected products, regardless of the expiry date or whether the products have been opened or not.
