Massy recalls Häagen-Dazs products due to presence of pesticide


The Government Analyst – Food and Drug Department (GA-FDD) is alerting customers of a voluntary recall of Häagen-Dazs plain vanilla ice-cream products – vanilla pint, mini-cup and bulk formats manufactured by General Mills and imported by Massy Distribution (Guyana) Inc.

Only the products listed are affected by the product recall, which applies to batches with best before dates up to and including May 21, 2023.

In a statement, the GA-FDD said the recall is based on the detection of ethylene oxide in the implicated products.

Ethylene oxide is a chemical that in gas form has been found to cause irritation of the eyes, skin, and respiratory passages.

Although there is no immediate risk to consumption of food contaminated with low levels of ethylene oxide, long-term exposure may lead to health issues.

Consequently, the GA-FDD advises consumers not to consume this product.
