MORE FLAVORITE ICE CREAM TAKEN OFF OF BARBADIAN SHELVES – BACTERIA IS BLAME GIVEN

Three more flavours of ice cream, manufactured by Flavorite Foods Ltd., are being removed from retail outlets by the Ministry of Health.

The ice cream flavours are:
Orange Pine 500ml BB 2009 April 24;
Chocolate Ripple 500ml BB 2009 April 09
and
Caramel Toffee 1litre BB 2009 August 06.


Environmental Health Officers from the Ministry are checking distribution points and retail outlets to ensure that all of the above-mentioned products are not offered for sale to the public.

This follows similar action last week by the Health Ministry which saw five flavours of Flavorite ice cream removed.


These were:
Cherry Vanilla, 1 litre BB 2009 August 04;
Coconut Vanilla Snack Cream, 148 ml;
White Vanilla Snack Cream, 148 ml;
Strawberry, 175 ml
and
Golden Vanilla 175 ml.


The action is being taken under the Health (Food Hygiene) Regulations 1969.

According to the Ministry, ?…testing of these eight flavours of ice cream has confirmed bacterial contamination.? [BGIS]
