Comfy Cow Ice Cream posted this comment on their website about the situation a day after the news was first reported…
We took immediate corrective actions and tested clean with the follow up inspection. We voluntarily recalled the pints that were made for our retail stores. We have taken extra precautions to make sure that none of the voluntary recalled pint lot numbers are in the scoop shops. Again, the safety of our loyal customers is our first priority. Please reach out to us if you have any concerns.
