Philly Swirls Recall?

Recommended Posts

I went to buy these Philly swirls Italian ice squeeze pops at Walmart and they wouldnt scan then i was told they weren't for sale because they had been recalled... I have been eating these recently (still have some i just bought earlier in the week) and tried to find any info about it but couldn't... Any suggestions? I'd like to know I really like those things they're delicious

Maybe email or call the company? These may be a voluntary recall by the company not the goverment. Might be they aren't in the Walmart system or didn't scan well and that is what a lazy check- out clerk said?

I would simply call the store back and ask to speak to a manager. I think it is quite possible that you had one of those incredibly moronic cashiers who has no freaking clue what the heck they are talking about. As a general rule when an item is recalled it is done based on the lot number of a particular batch or batches. The UPC on the product does not change and so stores would not remove the UPC from their systems for a recall. Rather they would have an employee go and check the lot number on every box on the shelf and in the storeroom, removing the offending products. This could probably all be cleared up quickly by calling your local Wal-Mart you were shopping at rather than waiting until tomorrow to call the manufacturer and have them be as confused as you are.
