Texas among states named in Popsicle-band recall
Englewood Cliffs, NJ -- Unilever United States, Inc. is voluntarily recalling a limited number of mislabeled 24-count boxes of Popsicle® brand Sugar Free Orange, Cherry and Grape flavored ice pops that mistakenly contain Popsicle® brand Sugar Free Healthy Bunch® Fudgsicle® and Creamsicle® ice pops. Milk, a known allergen, is undeclared on these boxes. Persons who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to milk run the risk of a serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume the Sugar Free Healthy Bunch® Fudgsicle® or Creamsicle® ice pops.
The affected boxes may contain Fudgsicle® and Creamsicle® ice pops that are individually wrapped with the “Fudgsicle®” and “Creamsicle®” logos. This limited voluntary recall is being conducted in cooperation with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
The affected product is sold in a paperboard box, containing 24--1.65 FL OZ (48.7 ML) POPS with a unit UPC code of 7756702295, with date codes of OCT0312GCD, OCT0412GCD, OCT0512GCD, OCT0612GCD and OCT0712GCD.

No other Popsicle® brand products are affected by this limited voluntary recall. There have been no reported cases of illness.
