It cannot be ruled out that the products contain traces of 2-chloroethanol (2CE).
According to the manufacturer, 2-chloroethanol can be linked to the presence of ethylene oxide, which could cause cancer. Customers who bought one of the affected ice cream flavors can return the pack to the retailer, according to the information. The purchase price will be refunded to them there.
