It has just come to our attention that a recent batch of Syracreamsicle ice cream may be unsafe for consumption, due to salmonella concerns. We have put into effect an immediate recall, so the flavor will not be available for the next week or so. Should you still see the product on the shelf, DO NOT purchase it.
If you have already purchased and consumed any of the product, please refer to the MedlinePlus article on salmonella (here) and watch for symptoms. Children, the elderly, and people with chronic conditions are of greatest concern and should contact their healthcare providers for further instruction. Most cases, however, will result in a few days of discomfort and go away naturally. Antibiotics are available, otherwise. If you are concerned and uncertain about what you should do, contact your doctor.
At this point, we are uncertain of the origin of the issue. Using quality, safe ingredients in our ice cream is our highest priority, and we train our staff in proper food preparation and handling practices. Rest assured that your concerns are ours as well, and when we have come to the root of the issue that information will be shared.
Please check back to the blog for updates on this situation, including the time at which Syracreamsicle may once again be safely purchased. In the meantime, we at Salt City Ice Cream urge you to re-blog this post in order to spread the word. We want our customers to be well-informed, safe, healthy, and happy.
If you have any comments or concerns and would like to speak to an employee at Salt City Ice Cream, please call:
We apologize for this upset; it is as unsettling to us as it is to you. We will be taking steps to rectify the issue and ensure that it is never repeated. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
