Warwick, RI–(ENEWSPF)–July 1, 2010.  I Dolce Inc. dba Roba Dolce of Warwick, RI is recalling its 33.8 oz (1 Liter) packages of Roba Dolce Double Chocolate Chunk Gelato because they may contain undeclared peanuts. People who have allergies to peanuts run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume these products.

The recalled “Double Chocolate Chunk Gelato” was distributed through Kroger/Fry’s stores in the State of Arizona and Ohio.

The product comes in a 33.8 oz (1 Liter), Gold plastic container. Containers recalled will have stamped on the bottom either “Enjoy by 12/10/10, Mfg with pride pl #44-50, Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Sample”, or “Enjoy by 12/10/10, Mfg with pride pl #44-50”.

The recall was initiated after it was discovered that the peanut-containing product was distributed in packaging that did not reveal the presence of peanuts. Subsequent investigation indicates the problem was caused by a temporary breakdown in the company’s production and packaging processes.
