Rich Products Corporation has not received any reports of adverse reactions associated with these products and has issued this voluntary recall action as a precautionary measure.

The recall was initiated after Rich’s discovered that the ice cream cake layers supplied by a third party supplier may contain walnuts. Rich’s is currently working with the supplier to address the issue and has notified the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) of this voluntary recall.

Consumers who have purchased the specific recalled products are advised not to consume them and to return the products to their point of purchase for a refund. Consumers with questions may contact Rich’s Helpline at (800) 356-7094, Monday – Friday, 8:00am – 5:00 pm EST.
