DENVER — The Kroger Co., which owns Colorado supermarket chains King Soopers and City Market, has recalled a particular brand of ice cream sold at stores across the state due to a potentially life-threatening reaction it may cause.

The company issued a press release Wednesday morning stating that select containers of Kroger Deluxe French Vanilla Ice Cream sold in 48-ounce cartons with a “sell by” date of June 12, 2013 under the UPC Code 11110 50718 have all been recalled.

Individuals with pecan allergies could be especially sensitive to this ice cream, with the company saying it could cause a “serious or life-threatening reaction” if consumed by such individuals.

Kroger says it has removed all of the affected cartons from its store shelves and has issued recall alerts to customers who purchased the ice cream.
