Pennsylvania-based Turkey Hill Dairy is recalling a bunch of ice cream that had been labeled as Dutch Chocolate but is actually Rocky Road, which has almond and egg ingredients that could be unsafe to people allergic to those items. Several brands of ice-cream have been affected by a Listeria-related recall due to a product purchased from a third-party supplier. The company resumed selling its products about four months later.
