UTICA, Ohio (AP) - An Ohio ice cream maker is voluntarily recalling some of its peanut-butter flavored products because of possible salmonella contamination.
Velvet Ice Cream said Thursday that some of the peanut products bought from Sunland Inc. for use in the ice cream flavors could be contaminated.
The recalled Velvet products are sold mainly at convenience stores, ice cream parlors and small, independent retailers in Ohio, Indiana, Kentucky, Tennessee, Virginia and West Virginia.
The Velvet brands recalled include Peanut Butter Cup, Supreme Peanut Butter Cup and Buckeye Classic.
The Food and Drug Administration is investigating salmonella found in samples taken from Sunland Inc., which is based in New Mexico. Sunland has recalled about 150 products it has made since March, 2010.
