Covington dairy recalls more ice cream

COVINGTON, Tenn. (AP) -- A West Tennessee ice cream plant has broadened a recall after determining possibly tainted peanuts were used.

Turner Holdings LLC of Covington issued a recall Friday of approximately 21,493 units of various ice cream flavors.

The dairy said peanuts, peanut butter and peanut paste it used in the products were supplied by Peanut Butter Corporation of America and could have been infected with salmonella.

Turner said the products were sold through distributors in Tennessee and Mississippi and consumers could have bought them at supermarkets, convenience stores, drug stores and discount stores.

The products being recalled are Best Choice Premium Candy Bar Crunch (UPC code 070038596226), Luvel Caramel Turtle Pie (077322149816) and Luvel Candy Bar Sundae (077322147812) in various size packages.

The products should not be eaten, but the packages may be returned to retailers for a refund.

Consumers may call Turner at 901-476-2643.

The company had earlier recalled six-pack boxes of peanut butter bars.
