RECALL: Popular ice-cream pulled from freezers over contamination fears

An urgent recall has been issued for a popular ice-cream sold at supermarkets across the country.

Halo Top’s Plant Based Caramel Chocolate Pretzel Ice Cream 473ml has been pulled from freezers due to potential chemical (solvent) contamination.

“Food products containing solvents may cause illness/injury if consumed,” Food Standards Australia said.


The ice-cream has been available for sale at independent food retailers including IGA in NSW, QLD & SA and Coles & Woolworths nationally.

The affected batch includes 0224, with a best before date of 11/8/2022.

People are being urged not to eat this product and to return it to the place of purchase for a full refund.

I’m pregnant and have already eaten this. What do I do?

I’m also pregnant and now extremely concerned, as I’ve eaten a whole tub!
Would I know by now if it’s done damage if I consumed it over three days ago?

I ate it and nearly went to the emergency room, felt like I was in labour and I’m NOT pregnant, I felt like I was poisoned for 7 days I had extreme stomach cramps that were constant and nauseous for the whole 7 days. My stomach bloated to its full potential and felt so painful. Honestly if ur pregnant maybe go to the hospital.

I have been ill for over a week. I have emailed Halo Top for more information and received an email back saying “someone will contact you within 3 business days” wth. Is there some other contact info.

I had the choc chip cookie dough one 5 days ago and I feel so sick and have had severe stomach pains and other things 🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️

Me too!! 8 days and I almost went to the emergency room 🙁 I’ve never been so sick. They need to remove the cookie dough ASAP

did you get sick straight away tho ? or did it randomly occur a few days after ?

I’m way too nervous to eat any of my tubs now! I have 3 dairy free tubs in my freezer that are just going to waste. Wishing everyone a speedy recovery that has been sick!
