Salmonella Peanut Butter Scare Hits Purity Dairies in Nashville

Purity Dairies, located in Nashville, Tennessee, has announced the voluntary recall of their 1/2 gallon squares of Purity Nutty Caramel ice cream. Purity decided to recall the Purity Nutty Caramel ice cream squares because they contain peanut ingredients from the Peanut Corporation of America. This is the plant which has produced peanut products which may be contaminated with Salmonella.

About 54,000 units of the Purity Nutty Caramel ice cream were involved in the recall. Apparently numerous stores in Middle and Eastern Tennessee, Southern Kentucky and Northern Alabama sold the 1/2 gallon squares of Purity Nutty Caramel ice cream. Purity states they have heard of no reports of illnesses related to the Nutty Caramel ice cream, so they are pulling the product as a preventative measure. No other Purity Dairies products are being recalled.
