For some time now, a product recall note has mentioned Häagen-Dazs ice cream. For good reason, we found a carcinogenic component. Find out all the details about the contaminated product in this article.
Product recall on Häagen-Dazs ice cream
It is true that it’s ice cream season. Most of us consume it to refresh ourselves. Especially since for some time, the heat persists in our regions. However, you have to be careful before buying it. Certain batches of ice cream marketed in Belgium have been subject to a product recall campaign.

In fact, this concerns seven ice cream from the Häagen-Dazs brand. These batches had to be withdrawn from the shelves after the discovery of carcinogenic components. It was the American group George Mills that sounded the alarm. This element in question is 2-Chloroethanol. The latter is an indicator of the presence of ethylene oxide, a carcinogenic pesticidein these ice creams.
This product recall campaign was announced by the Belgian Federal Food Safety Agency (AFSCA). As the latter specified, these are stores such as Albert Heijn and Intermarché who marketed these batches. We also found some at Jumbo.
According to the information received, the problem comes froma vanilla supplier. Consequently, Georges Mills has recalled products containing vanilla from this supplier.
Product recall: ice cream recalled in France
This is not at all the first time that ice cream from Häagen-Dazs are the subject of a food scandal. Remember that on August 4, 2022, the Belgians have already withdrawn ten products from the brand in supermarkets. For good reason, France had alerted them, on July 8, 2022, through the RASFF system, to the presence of ethylene oxide in these ice creams.
Since then, several members of the European Union have done the same in their stores. Nor did they forget towarn customers about the risks consumption of these products.
In the case of France, it had withdrawn 18 Häagen-Daz ice creamss following this product recall. A withdrawal which took place on August 5, 2022.

For its part, Spain took similar action. According to national security agencies, the Spaniards kidnapped 20 Häagen-Dazs products on August 8, 2022.
Following this scandal, we therefore ask you to always be vigilant before eating ice cream.
Some batches of cakes that one should avoid
It’s not just with ice cream that you have to be careful. A product recall campaign also affects certain batches of cakes sold in supermarkets.
It is also rather unfortunate that this concerns children’s favorite products. Indeed, on August 3, 2022, we were told that certain cakes sold in supermarkets are prohibited for consumption.
For good reason, they contain foreign bodies such as glass, metal, plastic, textiles and even paper. The products concerned are pound cakes of 250, 500 and 800 g. The Marbled Bar of 500 g of the P’tit Déli brand was also affected by this product recall.
Note that all these cakes were sold at Leclerc between June 17 and August 3, 2022. Several lots are concerned. Here are their GTINs: 3564700487464, 3564700019481, 3564700019474 as well as 3564700793770. Their date of minimum durability is between August 15 and September 12, 2022.
Following the discovery of these foreign bodies in these cakes, we will therefore advise each of us to do not consume. Our digestive system could indeed be injured by swallowing the products concerned. So, if you bought some, you can either return these cakes to the store where you bought them, or call consumer service.
It must be recognized that product recalls become more and more frequent in France. After the nuggets, contaminated as well as the ice creams, it is now the cakes that are affected. Therefore, the editorial staff advises you to always be attentive so as not to miss product recalls. This may help you avoid the worst.
