An ice cream mix distributed by Autumnwood Farm in Forest Lake, Minn., and sold at Love Creamery in Duluth was inadequately pasteurized, the Minnesota Department of Agriculture said on Monday.
There have been no reports of illnesses due to the oversight, which has prompted a consumer advisory. Two Minneapolis ice cream shops, Pumphouse Creamery and LouLou Sweet & Savory, were also affected.
Love Creamery owner Nicole Wilde stressed Monday that all products currently in the shop are safe to eat. “We have done everything we can with the state and the dairy,” she said.
The department advised those who purchased ice cream from Love Creamery - recently opened at 1908 W. Superior St. - between June 11 and July 12 to throw out any remaining in their freezers. Improper pasteurization can result in dairy products carrying bacteria such as E. coli.
