DENVER — Sinco Inc. is voluntarily recalling 30 oz. tubs of Archer Farms Chocolate Hazelnut Swirl Gelato, sold at Target stores, because the product has unlabeled peanuts.

According to the Food and Drug Administration, two people have become sick as a result of the label error.

The FDA said the gelato is imported from Italy and may have traces of peanut protein.

The gelato has a lid label of: L13-102 BEST BY: 12OCT2014

People who have an allergy or sensitivity to peanuts should not consume this product. No other Archer Farms gelato items are included.

The recall was initiated after lab testing detected a possible presence of peanut protein in one production lot with a Best By date of October 12, 2014. Other production lots tested negative for traces of peanut proteins are also being voluntarily withdrawn as a precautionary measure.

Consumers who have purchased Archer Farms Chocolate Hazelnut Swirl Gelato imported from Italy may return the product to a Target store for a full refund. For further questions please call SINCO at 617-395-6900, Monday – Friday, 9am to 5pm EST.
