Weis Markets has issued a recall this month for two different kinds of ice cream amounting to more than 11,000 containers over concerns that they could contain pieces of metal.

In the FDA announcement about the recall, they said the affected ice creams "may be contaminated with extraneous material, specifically metal filling equipment parts." The ice cream included in the recall is 10,869 containers of Weis Quality Cookies and Cream Ice Cream and 502 bulk containers of Klein’s Vanilla Dairy Ice Cream. You can see the full best-buy dates and UPC codes included in the recall here.

There has been one report so far of someone who found "an intact piece of metal equipment" in the Weis Quality Cookies and Cream Ice Cream. The cookies and cream flavor has been removed from stores. It has been sold in 197 Weis Markets’ stores in Pennsylvania, Maryland, Virginia, New Jersey, New York, Delaware, and West Virginia. The vanilla flavor was not for retail sale. It was sold to one establishment in New York and has been removed from there as well.

There were also two additional flavors packaged on the same day—Klein’s Cookies and Cream Dairy Bulk and Nelson’s Graham Slam Bulk–but these containers were stored in a warehouse and have not been distributed.

Customers can return the affected product back to its place of purchase for a full refund. For more information, you can contact Weis Customer Service at 1-866-999-9347 Monday through Friday 8 a.m.- 5 p.m. EST.
