Morrisons recalls own-brand ice cream over fears some could contain plastic

By Daniel Morrow

Morrisons has recalled its own-brand ice cream over fears that some may contain pieces of plastic.

Shoppers have been urged to return certain batches of Morrisons’ branded Amour Classic Vanilla Ice Cream immediately.

In an alert to customers, the Food Standards Agency said that the danger of plastic inside the product makes it ‘unsafe to eat’.

Packs containing three 120ml ice cream bars with a best before date of February 2023 have been impacted by the recall.

Customers who have purchased any of the affected packs must return them to the store they have bought them from for a full refund.

The Food Standards Agency (FSA) said that the product must not be eaten.

A statement on the FSA website read: “Morrisons has recalled Morrisons Amour Classic Vanilla Ice Cream because the product may contain small pieces of plastic.

“The possible presence of plastic makes this product unsafe to eat.

“Point of sale notices will be displayed in all retail stores that are selling this product. These notices explain to customers why the product is being recalled and tell them what to do if they have bought the product.

“If you have bought the above product, do not eat it. Instead return to the store from where it was bought for a full refund.”

Morrisons added: “No other products are affected by this issue.

"We apologise for the inconvenience this may cause and assure customers of our continuing commitment to the highest standard of product quality and safety."
