Helados La Tapatia Recalls Ice Cream for Undeclared Allergens

Helados La Tapatia of California is voluntarily recalling 13 milk based ice cream products because they contain egg, wheat, nuts, and soy, four of the major food allergens, that are not declared on the label. Anyone who is allergic to those ingredients could have a serious reaction if they eat these products. No illnesses or adverse reactions have been reported to date. A Spanish language version of the recall is available at the FDA web site.


The company did not clearly state which products were being recalled for which allergens. We think these 3 ounce bars are being recalled for undeclared egg and soy: 3 ounce milk bar in these flavors: Strawberry N Cream with UPC number 6 34242 20001 2, Coconut with UPC number 6 34242 20002 9, Chocolate with UPC number 6 34242 20003 6, Banana with UPC number 6 34242 20004 3, Vanilla with UPC number 6 34242 20005 0, and Cookies N Cream with UPC number 6 34242 20010 4. In addition, these flavors of the products are recalled in 3 ounce sizes: Esquimal with UPC number 6 34242 20012 8, Coffee with UPC number 6 34242 20013 5, Pina Colada with UPC number 6 34242 20014 2, Pecan with UPC number 6 34242 20007 4, and Rice with UPC number 6 34242 20008 1.

The company is also recalling 4 ounce milk bar in these flavors: Cookies N Cream with UPC number 6 34242 60007 2 for undeclared wheat and soy, and Granola with UPC number 6 34242 60012 6 for undeclared almonds and soy. You can see pictures of product labels at the FDA web site.

These products were sold in Arizona, California, Nevada, and Washington state. If you purchased these products and are allergic to soy, eggs, wheat, and almonds, or have celiac disease, do not eat them. Throw them away or return to the place of purchase for a refund.
