Here’s the latest from Blast’s continuing coverage of the nationwide salmonella outbreak

QUINCY, Mass. — /USNewswire/ — Following notification from its manufacturer, The Stop & Shop Supermarket Company has recalled its Stop & Shop brand ice cream Sundae Cones. The item was removed from store shelves because ingredients in the product were from Peanut Corporation of America (PCA) and has the potential to be contaminated with salmonella bacteria. The product has a UPC # 68826706258 and contains 8 – 4oz. cones in each package.

Customers who have purchased the product should discard any unused portions or bring their purchase receipt to any Stop & Shop for a full refund. To date, Stop & Shop has received no reports of illnesses associated with consumption of this product.

Customers looking for additional information may call Stop & Shop’s corporate brands hotline at 1-877-846-9949, M-F, 9am-5pm.

Maryland-based Giant Food LLC, with 182 supermarkets in the Mid-Atlantic states, also recalled the same store-branded Sundae Cones ice cream cones.
