If you just took a trip to the freezer aisle at your local H-E-B, think twice before enjoying your delicious frozen treat. The San Antonio-based supermarket chain has issued a voluntarily all-store recall for their half gallon H-E-B Creamy Creations Light Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream due to an undeclared allergen, according to a news release issued by the company.

“The products contain wheat, a known allergen, which is not declared on the product label,” the release reads. “People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to wheat run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume these products.”

The company discovered the mislabeling when some cartons of ice cream were labeled as “H-E-B Creamy Creations Light Cookies & Cream Ice Cream” versus “H-E-B Creamy Creations Light Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream,” H-E-B says.

All affected product have since been removed from store shelves and there have not been any reported illnesses to date. However, the affected product was sold in stores both in Texas and Mexico, as well as Mi Tienda stores in the state.

This recall involves UPC number 4122048399.

“Anyone who wants to return the items can take them to their nearest H-E-B store for a full refund,” the release adds. “Customers with any questions can contact H-E-B Customer Relations at 1-855-432-4438, Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. CST.”
