H-E-B Issues Ice Cream Recall
International grocer H-E-B revealed Friday it is launching a voluntary recall of one of its store brand ice cream flavors because it may contain small fragments of wood.

The recall is for the store's Creamy Creations brand Caramel Pecan Turtle flavored ice cream. Only products with Sell By dates of April 16th, May 10th, June 7th, and July 18th are affected, and the UPC code on the recalled products is 0 4122051877 7. If you purchased one or more packages of the recalled ice cream, you can return it to your local H-E-B store for a full refund.
